On Thursday, April 1 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm, UMass Dartmouth CVPA will present another night of Spoken Word on the CVPA Star Series stage. The lineup will include Nick LeBlanc, Rayana Grace, Craig DeMello, Sarah Jane Mulvey, Amanda Eyssallenne and UMass Dartmouth's own Emma Young.
Young is completing her MFA in Visual Design at UMass Dartmouth. She has an upcoming feature on the Cape and Islands NPR Poetry Sunday program. Young served as Poet Laureate of the Town of West Tisbury. She runs a small design studio focused on typeset letterpress printing and handmade papers. Beginning with a love of language, Emma is a writer, designer, and craftsperson, working toward the articulation of ideas.
Emma's work will be featured in the upcoming UMass Dartmouth 2021 MFA Thesis Exhibition, which will be on view at the Star Store Campus from March 30 to May 7. For more information and timed tickets, visit the University Art Gallery.
The CVPA Star Series runs every Thursday through the end of April. The Series is co-curated and co-produced in collaboration with Don Burton Media and Beatriz & Company with support from UMass Dartmouth and the City of New Bedford’s #NBfestive Winter Places project. In-kind support is provided by Chase Canopy and Lightworks Productions Inc.
Audiences are invited to enjoy performances from outside the street-level windows of the Swain studio at the corner of Purchase and Union Streets in Downtown New Bedford or tune in via live stream at: www.facebook.com/umassdcvpa/live
