Denise Dumas Make a Wish
Oct  20 - Nov 14, 2009(c) Denise Dumas
Reception Saturday October 24, 3-6pm

A three-channel video projection, Make A Wish combines images of thunderstorms and water with an accompanying soundtrack of voiced concerns to envelop the gallery in an electrical storm of uncertainty. Dumas believes that reality changes according to the social context that we inhabit. Her turbulent installation is a metaphor for these troubling times.

Mass Poetry Festival
Fri October 16, 8pm -9:30pm Free
Creativity in Hard and Hopeful Times presented by True Story Theater

Poets in the audience will be invited to share a personal example of how coping with economic, health, or other life challenges affects their creativity. In service to these poets, True Story Theater's improv actors will honor each story with haiku-like impact, capturing the heart and essence of each story with words, movement, music, and colored cloths. TST's mission  is to promote social healing and community building by listening deeply to people's stories and transforming them spontaneously into theater.
