Words & Music –Borderland Arts Meets Marquette Poets Circle An Interactive Display is the collaboration between Borderland Arts and the Marquette Poets Circle.
Artists and poets were challenged to create on the theme: music that inspires us. We exchanged our work and then poets responded to artwork and artist responded to poems. This exhibit is the result of our shared inspirations.
Borderland Arts is a not-for-profit organization established to promote the creative arts, enrich the cultural fabric of the Michigan/Wisconsin borderland communities, and build mutually beneficial relationships with similar groups elsewhere. To learn more about, please visit their website:
The Marquette Poets Circle welcomes poets of all ages and experience level. They meet on the first Monday in the month as part of the Center for the Healing Arts at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. Once a quarter, Peter White Public Library and the Marquette Poets Circle co-host an Open Mic called Inspired Words. Find us on our public Facebook page.
The artwork and poems will be exhibited from Feb. 4th to Mar. 27th at Bay College West Campus, 2801 US-2, Iron Mountain MI. Each artwork will be labelled with a QR code. Viewers can listen to the music and view the artists/authors at this virtual gallery by scanning the code with a mobile device. The public is invited to a reception and reading on Thursday, Mar. 5th from 6 to 8 pm CST at Bay College West Campus. To learn more visit the event page on Facebook.
