The Chinese American Museum of Chicago (CAMOC) is excited to host two free public programs for the Spotlight Series exhibition Yuge Zhou: Moon Drawings. The first of these programs is a poetry session in collaboration with the Chicago Poetry Center on Saturday, September 10, from 12pm-1pm CT, coinciding with the Mid-Autumn (Moon) Festival. The poetry session will start with a poetry performance by Lisa Low followed by an ekphrastic workshop with participants create and share their poems in response to the themes of the exhibition.
