A.K. "Mimi" Allin, the Poetess at Green Lake, curates poetry-infused "instigations" in SAMís downtown galleries. This month Mimi invites musician Andrew Stauffer to respond to works in Target Practice: Painting Under Attack 1949–78 through an original composition performed live in the Brotman Forum. As Stauffer plays, a group of local poets scattered throughout the galleries will create written interpretations of the music for audience members to read.
Featuring everyone from spoken word poets to literary figures, these evenings of words as art are at once intimate and engaging.
Free with museum admission.
