Poetry party

For the last two months, Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay has been traveling up and down Payne Avenue collaborating with Payne Avenue residents and visitors to create poems that capture the essence of the street. On Friday, Sept. 15 from 5 to 7 p.m., Vongsay will share these poems and the East Side Arts Council will introduce a large photo mural celebrating the community of Payne Avenue who collaborated on poems for this project. The event will take place at the East Side Arts Council, located at 977 Payne Ave. There will be plenty of snacks from the many community partners involved in the project, poetry, art, and love for Payne Avenue.

This project was made possible by the Minnesota State Arts Board Cultural Community Partnership grant program.
