The Board of Directors of the Lithuanian Center, after seeing my two spoken word art installations, were so taken by them that they insisted on organizing an opening reception. I was very flattered by this suggestion, since, given the pandemic, I had not planned an opening, only a virtual-video exhibit.
Chicago has loosened meeting restrictions and the Board wants to take advantage of the opportunity. The numbers of attendees must be limited, and social distancing will be practiced. Advanced registration is necessary and can be done by clicking HERE.
There are two spoken word, poetry, art installations. The first one, Libyan Sybil, deals with a prophetic, oracular statement made by a legendary, ancient Greek sybil. A video of this installation can be seen by clicking HERE.
The second one, Vieniems / Vien Jiems, is in response to a poem gifted to me by the renowned Lithuanian poet, Sandra Avizienyte. The video is in Lithuanian. For English speakers, there is a YouTube explanation that should be read first—it will make the video experience more fulfilling. To view it click HERE.
I hope that you can make it to the opening. Looking forward to seeing you again.
