Fisher Center presents Climbing PoeTree

Climbing PoeTree will present “Art — our Weapon, our Medicine, our Voice, our Vision,” at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 29 in the Geneva Room of the library.

Principals Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman have said their mission is “to reshape the world through (r)evolutionary art,” and have rocked international festivals from Maine to South Africa, headlined shows at more than 40 colleges and universities, and propelled the 2004 “Lyrics on Lockdown” tour, an effort to raise consciousness about the criminal justice system in and outside of prisons.

The “poets who moonlight as street artists and art activists who deploy their weapons of mass imagination,” will also present a student workshop at 4:30 p.m. that day in The Fisher Center, 212 Demarest Hall.
