Prismatic Park: MC Hyland

 

Author and founding editor of DoubleCross Press MC Hyland will present a dynamic literary experience to our Park visitors. An expansion of an ongoing poetry project, Hyland’s A Walking Poets’ Library is a resource to promote walking, conversation, publication, and exchange. There will be a small library staffed by the poet, workshops, and a performance that will end her residency in the Park.

Make sure to pick up a free poster in the Park, featuring exclusive images provided by Hyland and her artist residency schedule.

Josiah McElheny’s Prismatic Park will be on view from June 13-October 8. Prismatic Park will be used by three art non-profit organizations—Blank Forms, Danspace Project, and Poets House—to realize new and exciting works. When not occupied by resident artists, the public can access the exhibition as a platform for their own creativity. Look out for a free weekly poster available in the Park.
