First Friday at the VMFA

It's come to my attention that this month's Spoken Word series will be dedicated to Shann! If you're feeling lonesome this Friday, treat your ears to my mother's favorite thing- LIVE POETRY! 

(from Patricia Jagoda) 
Please join us for First Friday on January 3.  Our evening of Four Poets Reading will be dedicated to Shann Palmer, a great friend of the museum, who passed away last Saturday.  Shann was a talented musician, writer and poet who was instrumental in connecting us with poets in the regional and national poetry community.  She worked with us on the very first Art After Hours program series which featured a poetry component to the evening.  She continued this work with First Fridays. 

She will be greatly missed.
