SELECTED PAST EVENTS
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10TH, 2011
THE GETTY CENTER, LOS ANGELES
The Getty and Write Now Poetry Society present Dark Blushing, a unique evening of poetry, music and art featuring some of the brightest stars in contemporary poetry—Patricia Smith, Ilya Kaminsky, Jeffrey McDaniel, Rachel McKibbens, Brendan Constantine and Suzanne Lummis—all presenting new work inspired by the Getty’s Luminous Paper exhibition. Their performances will be accompanied by the lush live music of Portland artist Timmy Straw, whose work combines classical training on piano and strings with electronic beats and loops, as well as Roberto Miranda, a dynamic bassist noted for his inventive, high-energy improvisations. And to highlight the two poet-artist double threats of Luminous Paper—William Blake and Dante Gabriel Rosetti—the show will feature celebrity readings of their work, including a special appearance by iconoclast Marilyn Manson. Curated and hosted by actress and author Amber Tamblyn and poet Mindy Nettifee, Dark Blushing is a night not to be missed!
