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.
The exhibition opens with a one-night only performance of Walk With Me #3 featuring Phoenix Military Academy poets.
Monday — Friday, 11 AM — 4 PM
