line break: The Americas I want to live in...

August 14 - 15


A seven-week site dedicated to the poetry of Now! and tomorrow / a pop-up cold brew, pour-over coffee, kombucha, and conversation bar in downtown Denver / a space that explores what it means to be a museum Now!

Presented in collaboration with the Biennial of the Americas.

Each week takes a different thematic approach, bringing artists from diverse disciplines together in multi-arts collaborations through workshops, readings, performances, discussions and other programs relevant to the poetry of today.
