Housatonic Museum of Art Presents:
Live from the POEMobile: Bridgeport Arts Fest!
On Saturday, July 13th at 8:30pm, the POEMobile, a beautifully hand-painted truck covered in multilingual poetry that houses an innovative, open-air text projection system, will visit Bridgeport’s Arts Fest. Led by poetry ambassador Shanna T. Melton, Bridgeport’s best and brightest poets will perform along with their verses writ large on the façade on the McLevy Building at State and Broad Streets. The event also features music by the hip-hop and jazz fusion trio The Mighty Third Rail.
The POEMobile is presented by City Lore and Bowery Arts + Science and sponsored by Housatonic Museum of Art at Housatonic Community College, Elizabeth Fray, the Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development Offices of Culture and Tourism, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
