Art in Orbit – Art and Poetry Walk (CANCELLED)
April 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
UPDATE: We’re sad to share that this year’s Art in Orbit event has been cancelled. We look forward to taking part in future events and will let folks know when the next one is scheduled!
Join Anime & Things as we welcome Fiali Photos (facebook.com/Fiali-Photos-435805933129871/) to our store during the Art in Orbit art walk an event where the overlapping worlds of art and poetry will be curling around the Woodstock Square!
Visual Artists from Rockford and greater Chicagoland area will be setting up pop-up shops at several local businesses. Each one of these artists is in some way connected to, inspired by, or in conversation with the ghost of, Ursula K. Le Guin. We love to see how poetry and art collide and inspire, and we know you will too. So swing by these artists’ pop-ups on Saturday around the historic Woodstock Square; you might find something wild and striking for your own collection.
