Come celebrate the release of Press Street's latest visual arts and literary collaboration, Curtain Optional. Join for free drinks, a reading/discussion/book signing with Brad and Jim Richard.
In both poetry and prose, Brad Richard explores the influence of his father's work on his own, as well as the experience of growing up as the son of an artist while becoming an artist himself. Jim Richard is a professor of painting at the University of New Orleans and has exhibited at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the New Orleans Museum of Art. Brad Richard is chair of creative writing at Lusher Charter School. He is the author most recently of Motion Studies (winner of the 2010 Washington Prize from The Word Works) and his work has appeared widely in journals and anthologies. Admission: Free and open to the public.
