Poetry Night

Thursday, Jun 16, 2022
7:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Livestream on Facebook and YouTube


During the 2022 school year, The Broad once again welcomed high school classes to participate in the museum's live virtual Art+Rhyme program. Students view artworks through guided virtual experiences live from the museum’s galleries and participate in discussions on the artwork’s themes.

Created in partnership with 826LA, Art+Rhyme provides high school classes the opportunity to engage with the Broad collection while developing critical and visual thinking skills through poetry.

Please join us as we invite those students back to share the poems they created during the program live onstage, along with special guest Mario Bellatin, who will join us remotely from Mexico City to read an original poem inspired by a Broad collection artwork.
