Cheryl Pope Just Yell : From Within

Jun 11, 2015 – Aug 28, 2015

Project& artist Cheryl Pope and a group of young poets from Chicago public schools will activate various places and spaces of the Poetry Foundation through installation, sculpture, and spoken-word. The building will be adorned with 5 gymnasium championship banners with text composed by youth from Lindblom Math and Science Academy. Borrowing themes and tactile relics of American high school culture, Pope and the young poets address issues of violence as they plague the city of Chicago at a rapidly increasing rate.

Join us for the conversation WALK BACK WITH ME on July 15, and the performances The physical embodiment of language on August 10 and Poetry Fashion Dance Music on August 20.
