FUSION Poetry with Ohio Poet Laureate Amit Majmudar, MD

Presented by Summit Artspace at Summit Artspace, Akron OH

May 20 2016
FUSION Poetry with Ohio Poet Laureate Amit Majmudar, MD

Summit Artspace will be filled with poetry and art from the worlds of science and medicine on May 20, when the public is invited to a reading by Ohio’s first Poet Laureate, Amit Majmudar, M.D. He will be joined by two student poets from NEOMED.

The reading with the Ohio Poet Laureate will also feature Northeast Ohio Medical University student poets.

A graduate of Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED), Dr. Majmudar will be joined by two NEOMED students who placed in the 2016 William Carlos Williams Poetry Competition, a national contest now in its 34th year at the University. The readings will take place in conjunction with Summit Artspace’s FUSION Art Exhibit.

An intense backdrop for the poetry, FUSION will bring together the work of local artists who embrace science as an inspiration for art–from the precision of medical illustrations to the awe-inspiring forms discovered through biomimicry.

“Summit Artspace is thrilled to be able to create this opportunity for area residents to hear the Poet Laureate. We are also equally excited to have the NEOMED students who have been nationally recognized.  They all have strong ties to our area, which bonds us to their poetic voices.  We appreciate the collaboration with NEOMED to
