From World Poetry Day through National Poetry Month, Nevada County Arts Council, the County of Nevada, and Nevada County Libraries present Poems on Belonging at the Rood. This exhibition is part of Sierra Poetry Festival’s month of pop-up poetry experiences, taking place in venues across Nevada County now.
The exhibition is an intimate grouping of poems submitted by local poets that center individual notions on the theme of belonging. The goal of the exhibition is to spark conversations that encourage belonging and to invite Nevada County residents to enjoy and interact within public spaces. In addition to framed poetry, the exhibition includes an interactive PoeTree where visitors can add their own words on the theme of Belonging.
Join us for an opening reception on World Poetry Day, Tuesday, March 21st at 4:45pm in the Rood Center lobby.
