Poems For Our Country

This was a collaboration between the art gallery Union Hall, my a cappella and storytelling group The Storytellers, 8 poets and visual artists from around the nation, and myself. The exhibit curated a collection of poems and tapestries to speak to how we could encourage connection and empathy in our country in a tumultuous year 2020. I wrote a poem for the collection (What Kind of Human Are You?) that was featured among a series of crowdsourced words of intention for the year. The gallery also had an exhibit of mosaics from the eight artists which culminated in a performance from our group and a live reading of my poem amid the pieces.
