Spoken Art? It’s a celebration of words - in poetry,stories, monologues - presented in an art gallery! The Studios of Cocoa Beach, 165 Minuteman Causeway in downtown Cocoa Beach makes room for writers and performers every fourth Saturday. On August 25, from 7 to 9 pm, the Studios welcomes “The Three Amigos”: Jeff Tressler of Cocoa Beach, Studios artist, author and poet, beaux Patrick of Merritt Island, poet and songwriter, “lower case b to remind me I’m no better than you….ends with an x because I am extraordinary…just like you!” These two locals will be joined by a third surprise wordsmith.
Spoken word is poetry written on a page but performed for an audience. It’s a high energy form of expression that brings the oral tradition of storytelling to a new audience.
Join these writers as they swap stories and captivate you with their poetry. Be entertained and inspired. Feel free to bring your favorite beverage and snacks. Settle in for a fun evening showcasing the spoken word while you enjoy photography, paintings, sculpture and more by local artists.
The gallery is open Monday and Tuesday 10:30am to 3:30 pm, Wednesday through Saturday 10:30 to 8 pm, and Sunday 11 to 4. For information on Spoken Art contact Jeff at 407-376-0348 or the Studios of Cocoa Beach at 321-613-3480
