On Saturday, April 24th, we made space for an evening of poetry hosted by Brendan Constantine and welcoming poets Kaveh Akbar, Paige Lewis, and Los Angeles’ newly minted Poet Laureate, Lynne Thompson. This program marked the return of a special series where poets are invited to create new and original works in response to Craft Contemporary’s exhibitions and this session centered the work of glass artist Kazuki Takizawa.
