Juliee Landar messaged me in world late yesterday to tell me of her plans to return the popular Gallery Art Talk series. I had stopped on to several of the featured events to listen to Gracie Kendall and Em Larsson last year and was pleased to hear that she was bringing back the event. Born MFA, if you haven't visited is one of Second Life's gems. The museum has exhibitions of several well known virtual world artists in an exhibit space that is open and inviting. Here's the information on the first of two events planned at this time:
I am pleased to announce the return of the Gallery Art Talks to the Born MFA in 2012!
DATE: January 18th - 6 PM SLT
Van Carendow has recently installed the exhibit "Myth and Fantasy" in the museum's upper gallery and will be speaking about this exhibit as well as what inspires him and influences his art! TP over to see this exhibit and mark it on your calendar to attend the art talk!
Monday @ the Museum
- January 23rd 5 PM SLT
In 2012, the Born MFA is pleased to be hosting monthly poetry events. The lovely Karli Daviau, the museum's poet in residence, will serve as the host for this series.
Each month, we'll focus on a different aspect of natural beauty, and invite you to share your poetry with us. You may read or pass the poem to Karli to read. The topic for January is trees.
Here is an Emersonian quote for inspiration:
"The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more"
Put pen to paper - The trees will be delighted by your touch.
Submit all of your poems by January 22nd via notecard to: Juliee Landar.
