Madzirov is the author of several collections of poetry including Studentski Zbor award-winner Locked in the City.

There will also be readings of select translations from Poetry International by MFA poets from SDSU.
The Poetry & Art Series (established in the summer of 2001) in the Museum of the Living Artist is itself both a unique show and a unique venue. Poets and audiences gather in the museum to witness a live collaboration between writers and visual artists.
Poetry & Art, the San Diego Art Institute’s quarterly museum series, gives regional artists an opportunity to express themselves in a variety of forms and styles. Audiences hear poetry and prose in dialogue with painting, photography, sculpture, music and dance. Any featured guests serve not only as entertainment but also as inspiration for developing artists. The free speech event reveals the diversity and importance of the region’s artists.
Poetry & Art Series since 2001 — Poetry & Art takes place in the 10,000-square-foot San Diego Art Institute at Balboa Park and includes music and snacks. The event is open to the public and audience members can participate or simply enjoy the show. Cost is $5. Open mic signups start at 6:30 p.m., and the event runs 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. Bring a bottle of wine to share and get in free.
