We’re so busy getting ready for the Summer Festival of the Arts on the YSU campus this Sat. July 11th from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sun. July 12th from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Stop by our booth anytime to pick up a free tote bag graced with the poem “Disco” written by Cleveland poet Dianne Borsenik. In a blind judging, YSU poet Phil Brady (thank you, Phil!) selected Dianne’s poem from entries in our ekphrasis contest.
“Disco” was inspired by a print in “Prayer Series” by University of Akron faculty artist Hui-Chu Ying (the top image here). Dianne wrote her poem at Ekphrastacy!, a night of writing from art at the Cleveland Heights Art Gallery. We love the phenomenal tote bag design by YSU graphic arts students.
