On Friday, June 16, BOA will collaborate with Deborah Ronnen Fine Art and DJ Father Time for "Minimalism in Poetry and Music," a special event that is part of a larger pop-up art exhibit entitled Minimal Mostly.
Starting at 7:00pm, the event will feature minimalist artwork by renowned artists all over the world, accompanied by music and stripped-down poems for community members to read. For the complete event details and a full list of event readers, click here.
We thought we'd feature some minimalist poems and art pieces in the days leading up to the event. Below are some pieces that will be featured that evening. We hope you will join us.

Be like a dandelion seed
floating in the breeze
Be like a bearded late autumn reed seed
Set out alone, create a great new world
