Enjoy a night of art, poetry, and spoken word celebrating the Museum’s special ticketed exhibition, Swoon.

Local poets and spoken word artists will regale you with their original pieces inspired by the art works on view.

The exhibition features the work of Caledonia Curry/Swoon, whose art explores timely and complex issues, from personal and collective trauma to the power of art to heal and unite people during turbulent times. Striking, contemplative, and inspirational, her work is a powerful reminder of the potential for transformation that lies within us all.
