Join us for an exploration of Etel Adnan’s relationship to Bay Area creative communities with a night of poetry and musical performances. Poets David Buuck, Nick Hoff, and Denise Newman share selections from both Adnan’s writing and their own. The evening’s festivities continue with a performance by experimental harpist and composer Zeena Parkins and percussionist William Winant inspired by Adnan’s long relationship to color, abstraction, and the California landscape.
