Celebrate poetry and art during the opening reception for Broadsides: Poetry off the Shelf at the Alliance for the Arts on Thursday, January 12 at 7 PM. Broadsides features the words of 15 poets merged with images created by 15 visual artists into printed posters.

Participating artists include:
Juli Bobman • Katherine Boren • Andy Browne • Brian Cast • Geoff Coe • Laurent Dareau • Paula Eckerty • David Gittleman • Ken Lamers • Colleen North • Rick Plummer • Sherry Rohl • Beverly Taht • Sarah Tumm • Pat Zalisko
