April 2021

Poetry Collaboration Show

"Ode to VI" is the April 2021 featured gallery show at GLCAC (Greater Livingston County Arts Council) Art Center. It will open on Friday, April 2, in the Joe Bailey Gallery. The show runs through the month. The gallery is located upstairs at the Art Center. An elevator/lift is available.


The exhibit is a collaboration between the Art Center and the Pontiac Chapter of Illinois State Poetry Society. Poets wrote poems to inspire artists and artists designed art to inspire the poets. This is the sixth such collaboration. Last year's planned show was canceled because of the shutdown. The show is also in conjunction with April being National Poetry Month.
