BOA collaborates with 'Minimal Mostly' exhibit

BOA is proud to collaborate with Deborah Ronnen Fine Art for MINIMAL MOSTLY, a pop-up art exhibit taking place in Rochester, NY, now through June 30, 2017.

Featuring numerous special events throughout the exhibit period, including a BOA collaboration event called "Minimalism in Poetry and Music," MINIMAL MOSTLY brings to Rochester work by world-renowned artists, including Josef Albers, Carmen Herrera, Ellsworth Kelly​, Sol LeWitt, Agnes Martin, and Frank Stella.

These "Masters of Minimal" are artists who developed and formalized the concepts of minimal art. Featuring objects in a variety of media – painting, print, sculpture, ​and photo-based work, the exhibit will examine the stylistic varieties within Minimalism as well as its continued influence on visual art today by younger artists committed to the practice.

Taking place on June 16 from 7-10PM, "Minimalism in Poetry and Music" will feature DJ Father Time, and will be held at R1 Studios in Rochester. According to Boo Poulin, BOA's honorary vice chair, "This will be a twist on the standard poetry reading, sort of a pop-up reading to work within the context of the art."

The Democrat and Chronicle says, "BOA staff will choose stripped-down poems for community members to read when, during the course of the evening, they are handed a microphone." The event is free and open to all.

Below is the complete event information, including a list of event readers:
