Word Up! First Thursday Art Walk

April is Poetry Month! We are celebrating words in visual and auditory style.

April celebrates Poetry Month with Word Up!, a celebration of words during the First Thursday Art Walk on April 4th from 5-8pm.  We are excited to have the Santa Barbara Middle College in the gallery for a student-led fundraiser in honor of poetry month. Local students will get a chance to express themselves through spoken-word poetry to connect the community through the beauty of words.

In addition to our poetry slam, we have a rap battle planned, alongside a DJ playing us though the evening.

Simon Kiefer brings his Typewriter Project to YI, giving the public the opportunity to create their own short story, poem or Haiku.

State Gallery showcases the work of Santa Barbara printmaker Bay Hallowell, in an exhibition called Truth be Told, a compilation of works combining art and text.
