…Like This - a poetically-inspired interactive visual art exhibit
a poetically-inspired interactive visual art exhibit on display beginning 29 November, 2019 from 6:00pm until 9:00pm and during the month of December at Aimee’s Coffee House at 1025 Massachusetts St. Lawrence Kansas, 66044.
In this day and age, life is in a rapid state of change. With the explosion of labeling due to technology, the internet and social media is used from the highest level of our society to the littlest child holding a tablet or phone in their hands. We are re-defining what society is and what it means.
With this in mind, Perry Shepard is asking viewers of his work to reflect on your lives. If any of the paintings touch your mind and memories, relabel the work by writing a sentence that ends in ....like this.
Once the show is over, Perry will take the labeled pieces and develop a book of poems inspired by viewers labeling. The exhibit will open at 7:00pm. Perry will introduce the exhibit and read some poems. Perry will then open the mike for poets to share their words.
