Registration


Registration is closed


January 20, from 5:00 - 8:30pm


You hear the words of a poem or a song and, with a bit of imagination, you visualize what these mean to you.  It is a natural response to audible clues.  This is exactly what Artists and Photographers will be doing in collaboration with Poets and Songwriters.  


Poets and Lyricists unite to issue a challenge to Idyllwild's visual artists:


Can you catch the vision and be inspired from a poem or lyrics to create a companion painting or any form of visual art?


We are calling all Artists and Photographers to take up the challenge to create a visual interpretation of the words provided by Poets and Songwriters.  There are no size or medium limitations.  


These donated works of art will be included in a Silent Auction to raise money for art education in Idyllwild.  


We invite the Artists, Photographers, Poets, Songwriters, Wordsmiths and the general public to this intimate and engaging evening with a:


  • Community potluck,
  • Refreshments  (wine, beer, soft drinks)
  • A Silent Auction of the featured Art/Poetry
  • Poetry Readings
  • Music
  • People's Choice Vote
  • Artist Demonstrations
