Head over to Carolyn’s Coffee Connection, 1351 52nd Street, Kenosha, on Monday, April 26 for a couple gatherings to excite your upper lumbar and tickle your fancy, too. 

First up is Sketchcrawl Kenosha at 6:00 PM.  Sketchcrawl is a worldwide event, taking place from Berlin to Barcelona to Kenosha, in which artists and writers take to the streets to capture the environment that surrounds them into words and pictures.  Sound like fun?  Make plans to attend on Monday night to learn about the Spring Crawl, taking place on May 15.  For more on Sketchcrawl, visit www.sketchcrawl.com.  Also stop by www.urbansketchers.com

At 6:30 PM, sit down (or remain standing) for a gathering by Southport Press.  In late March, Southport Press gathered ideas from Racine and Kenosha citizens and is now ready to begin to transform those ideas into fun projects.    Southport Press is the small press publishing division of Kenosha Community Media, Inc., www.kenoshamedia.org

These activities are free and open to the public.   Please join us!

Be Exposed!, February 19th in Kenosha

February 9, 2010 at 12:21 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , )

So, you’ve read Mother Goosed and then read it again, but Spring is still not here.  You have cabin fever really bad and need some release.  Head over to Carolyn’s Coffee Connection, 1351 52nd Street, Kenosha, WI, on Friday, February 19th at 7:00 p.m. for a free event, Be Exposed!, an evening of art, poetry, and music. 

Visual artist Rebecca Venn, poet Nick Demske, and musician Brent Mitchell will present and perform.  Be Exposed! is your opportunity to not only beat the winter blahs but also to share in and benefit from the nurturing spirit of the creative culture. 

Did I mention it’s free?  Did I tell you that Carolyn’s is a very cool place?  Be Exposed! is sponsored by ExposeKenosha.com, the Kenosha Writer’s Guild, and Carolyn’s Coffee Connection.
