Tristin Lowe: Under the Influence: A Poetic Encounter

University and community poets will meet in the serene and surreal constellation that is Tristin Lowe: Under the Influence and read a selection of poems. The installation, which includes a twelve-and-half-foot-diameter felt facsimile of the moon, creates a feeling of time having stopped, a sensation that is both captivating and strange. Poets will read work that address that feeling and other themes in their work. Talin Tahajian, U-M MFA student and Hopwood Graduate Poetry winner, will curate this event, inviting fellow students and local poets to share their work. Join us for this encounter with unexpected visual and literary art.

Lead support for Tristin Lowe: Under the Influence is provided by the University of Michigan Office of the Provost, the Herbert W. and Susan L. Johe Endowment, and the Susan and Richard Gutow Endowed Fund.
