Bring Top-Notch Competition to Attleboro Arts Museum

Springtime means poetry at the Attleboro Arts Museum! On Thursday, May 28, the Museum will host the 9th annual Boston Poetry Slam, the Providence Poetry Slam, and other invitees in a live poetry competition to showcase local poets traveling to the 2015 National Poetry Slam. Visitors to the Museum that evening will enjoy a poetry open mic and top-notch performance competition, including an opportunity to judge the slam with Simone Beaubien as the SlamMaster.  Poets, listeners, and art enthusiasts of all ages attended this high-energy literary event.

A poetry slam is a competition at which poets read or recite original work. These performances are then judged on a numeric scale by previously selected members of the audience. Slam poetry has found popularity as a form of self-expression among many teenagers.  We’ll have 2 groups, teen and adult.

Several visual artists will be creating artworks around the perimeter of the museum in reaction to the poetry slam… “performance” art, of sorts.
