Marlon Carey curates Poetry for Thought from 10/1 - 10/6.
A diverse selection of Rhode Island poets bringing an array of topics, styles and performances. These poets will delight and astound you, bringing intriguing spoken works of art. — Marlon Carey
10/6: Indigo Bethea
In connection with the ongoing Locally Made Exhibition at the RISD Museum, I’ll be presenting new work, old favorites, a bit of drumming and a few on-the-spot improve poems which include audience participation. This work highlights the darker side of my experiences in life’s journey. So be ready for a thought-provoking, soul moving, slightly disturbing hour of Spoken Word! — Indigo Bethea
Free with museum admission.
