Senior Wednesday: Finding the Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Location: Ulrich Musuem

Time: 10:00 a.m.

Cost: Free!

The Poet Laureate of Kansas will be appearing at the Ulrich Museum of Art for a special talk this Wednesday. Even if you don’t know a thing about poetry, this talk is for you. Poet Laureate Kevin Rabas will be exploring how the ordinary events and objects in our day-to-day lives are both sources for poetry and can be navigated using it. Rabas, a jazz musician, will also be using song to bring the talk to life. It’s sure to be a wonderful presentation for anyone curious about how poetry can impact their lives, and it’s an opportunity to meet a true Kansas artist.
