Join us for a special event to mark the closing of "Poem Dresses," by artist Susan Kurtenbach, focused on healing and transformation. Participants will compose poems to use in making personal poem clothing. Some of the poem clothing in the show – many of which are vintage items – will be auctioned off. Proceeds will benefit the Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault (MOCSA) and The Writers Place.

9:30 a.m. – 10:25 a.m.:  Poet Maril Crabtree will lead a guided writing activity where you will write a poem.

10:30 a.m. – 11:20 a.m.:  Apply your poem to an item of clothing, either one you bring from home or on remnants we have on site. Activity led by Susan Kurtenbach.

11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.:  Reception and Silent Auction
