Take a break from your day, bring your lunch and unleash your creativity. As you eat your lunch, enjoy a unique cultural experience that turns us all into poets. Each month, create, listen or watch different poems designed to spark the artist in you. Each workshop encourages you to step out of the mundane and explore your potential and escape from the daily stresses of life while remembering how beauty can be found in even the simplest of words. Guests are invited to bring their lunch, and a friend and come create a memorable piece of art.

Lunch with Art - Poetry - February 2021
This month we celebrate the future of black poets during our Lunch with Art Poetry Series! We are excited to introduce you to poets who performed at the Jason Taylor Foundation Louder Than A Bomb competition!
Kevin Coval, Co-Founder of Louder Than A Bomb said, "We feel that what young people have to say about the world they inhabit and hope to construct is more useful than any armament, more complex than prison industrial systems, and louder than any bomb.”
We hope you learn as much from these young people as we certainly have!
Please note, some of the themes covered in these poems include sensitive content that is intended for a mature audience.
