The Addison Center for the Arts is pleased to announce "Expressions: Art & Verse 2024" , our fourth collaboration between Illinois artists and the Illinois State Poetry Society. In February, the ACA will host the program in which ISPS poets recite ekphrastic poems they’ve written about pieces of art. It is always an enriching melding of two art forms — poetry and visual art.
The art exhibit will open Friday, February 23, 2024 and will continue through March 23, 2024. Participating artists will display original artworks that inspired a poem by an ISPS poet. ISPS poets will jury the prospective artists by choosing their favorite from the candidates’ entry images.
The reception will be on Saturday, February 24, 2024, from 1 to 4 pm. During this event, the public is invited to enjoy the art exhibit in the gallery and then attend the poetry recital by members of the ISPS in the adjacent studio theater.
Enjoy Virtual Exhibitions "Tales and Histories" "Scenes of Nature" and much much more.
Thank you to these funding agencies for helping the Addison Center for the Arts bring art to this community.
The Addison Center for the Arts acknowledges the support of the Illinois Arts Council Agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Dupage Foundation, the Town of Addison, our corporate sponsors and members of this community. THANK YOU!
