Michael Klam Reading and Art Installation at Evolution, March 17-18
The art installation includes two designed and painted large box projects: one was created with elementary students in the Museum of the Living Artist’s Page to Canvas to Stage program, funded by the California Arts Council, using found materials and student poetry; the other was built with Setom, a young graffiti artist, for the San Diego Museum of Art’s Summer Salon Series and used as an oversized soapbox to present poetry throughout the museum in a minstrel fashion. Reading will be on Sunday, the 18th from 1-3 p.m. Evolution is located at 2965 5th Ave. in Hillcrest. Michael is Poet in Residence for the Museum of the Living Artist. He hosts the Poetry & Art Series; 2012 featured authors include renowned Ilya Kaminsky, Katie Farris, and USCD’s Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Rae Armantrout.
