John and I are teaching an ekphrastic poetry workshop through the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art tomorrow evening, then participating in a reading at the museum next Friday. We'll be reading poems based on the current exhibit ("Visual Rhythm presents non-narrative, abstract, and immersive experimental film, video, and digital art, connecting recent directions in media art to earlier modes of expression").
It's not too late to sign up for the class, but if you can't make it, consider coming to the performance next week!
