Readers and Riders: Metro Poetry Series with Joe Ross
Experience the spoken word in a context often defined by silence. Knowledge Commons DC is hosting readings by local poets on the last car of metro trains at 4 o’clock on all four Sundays in June. Join us for a twofold transportation as we travel through the tunnels of DC and the words of local poets.
Local Poet Joe Ross invites you on a ride through the ever changing graffiti landscape of the metro. Joe’s exploration of Cool Disco Dan’s work (http://www.cooldiscodan.com) has .resulted in writings of his own that explore the nuances of graffiti as both an act of naming and memorializing. Our journey north on the red line offers a ephemeral gallery of graffiti art
