Tonight: Poetry Scores to David Clewell’s ‘Jack Ruby’s America’

| November 12, 2010

Poetry Scores is host to an Art Invitational to “Jack Ruby’s America” by Missouri poet laureate and Webster professor/Creative Writing director David Clewell on Friday, Nov. 12, at Mad Art Gallery. Some 50 visual artists are making work in response to Clewell’s poem. All work will be on sale on silent auction and will go home with buyers that night.

Time: 7 – 11 p.m., Friday, Nov. 12
Location: Mad Art Gallery, 2727 S. 12th Street, St. Louis, MO 63118

The silent art auction starts promptly at 7 p.m., with bids closing at 9 p.m. The cash bar and food catered by John Eiler should last until 10 p.m. All proceeds from art sales will be divided evenly between artist, venue, and Poetry Scores, an arts organization devoted to translating poetry into other media.

The event also is the occasion for the release of their new poetry score to “Jack Ruby’s America,” featuring music by Yid Vicious (Madison, WI), Another Umbrella (San Pedro, CA), Kennebunkport Jazz Workshop (Nashville, TN), and Frank Heyer (St. Louis, MO).
