Discover the intersection of language and visual art with Poet Laureate Lara Gularte

Check back later for the dates during Dark Mountain, Deep Valley.

Arts and Culture El Dorado is proud to host Poet Laureate Lara Gularte for The Firehouse Sessions - a series of workshops and poetry readings centered on ekphrasis, the practice of describing visual art in a literary mode. The artwork displayed in Confidence Firehouse Gallery will serve both as inspiration and as backdrop for these intimate, illuminating dialogues between disparate mediums. Some of the poems that emerge from these workshops will be presented to the public at free poetry readings, held in Confidence Firehouse Gallery, amid the art that inspired the poems.
