BOA "Pop Up" Readings Continue

For the past year, BOA has been waging a guerilla poetry campaign around our home city of Rochester, NY. We've "popped up" at art galleries, the public market, inside stores and on the street. The idea is simple - go where people are congregating, stand up and proudly read a BOA poem. The campaign continued last weekend with BOA board member Jonathan Everitt and BOA marketing/production manager Al Abonado reading poems from Selected Poems by BOA founder Al Poulin at the opening of an exhibit of Robert Marx paintings at Rochester Contemporary Art Center. Don't adjust your computer (or your eyes), these photos were snapped on the fly with a camera phone, so they're low quality and blurry. That said, hopefully they'll give you a taste of what a "pop up" looks like. There were a few photographers snapping photos during the event (there's one right behind Al!), so with any luck one of them has a better shot we can post eventually.
