On Thursday, June 17, 2021, there was a special poetry reading by Los Angeles-based artist Diedrick Brackens, Arizona-based poets Clottee Hammons and Sean Avery Medlin and Southern California-based poet George Hammons. This evening of spoken word engaged cross-generational dialogues about the Black experience. Presented by Emancipation Arts and SMoCA in conjunction with the exhibition Diedrick Brackens: ark of bulrushes.
During these uncertain times, SMoCA has invited artists and staff to utilize our blog Inspire as an outlet to make meaningful connections by sharing personal reflections and insight into their practice. Explore more entries from our Museum Musings series.
