516 ARTS announces the revival of our literary arts series called 516 WORDS, now under the leadership of Don McIver and in partnership with Beyond Poetry, LLC. Each reading is inspired by the theme of the exhibition on view in the gallery and features three to five poets who are invited to participate.
The first reading is in conjunction with the exhibition «Cross Pollination,» about bees and other pollinators. Plants and pollinators have evolved together over thousands of years, and a large percentage of the food that humans eat depends on pollination.
516 ARTS Literary Arts Coordinator Don McIver says, “Everyone is invited to this reading in the spirit of bees and pollinators. Inspired by the cross pollination of ideas in the poetry hive of Albuquerque, the featured poets explore the interconnectedness of humans, plants and animals in relation to climate change and the future of life on Earth.”
516 WORDS is made possible in part by Beyond Poetry, LLC.
