Art Goodtimes Kicks Off New Live Poetry Series At ArtWalk June 2nd


TELLURIDE… After a two-year hiatus due to Covid-19, live poetry is returning to town. The Telluride Institute’s Talking Gourds Poetry Program has teamed up with Telluride Arts to present an in-person outdoor reading series on ArtWalk’s first Thursday of each month this summer to be called Walking Talking Gourds. The first featured reader will be Art Goodtimes on the June 2nd ArtWalk event at 6:30 p.m. on the patio of the Sheridan Opera House’s Show Bar in the North Oak Street Park.

“We’re delighted to offer live performances again,” said Talking Gourds Co-Director

Emma Youngquist. “Walking Talking Gourds will showcase mostly local poets and

storytellers as an in-person complement to our Bardic Trails virtual zoom readings on

the first Tuesday of every month at the Wilkinson Public Library.” That series stars poets

from all over the country as featured readers
