During the month of July, all Club Members were invited to participate in Ecstatic Ekphrastic: Public Art Through Writers’ Eyes. What Cheer Writers Club and local arts org The Avenue Concept teamed up to create writing prompts based on four works of public art in Providence. We invited Club Members to use these prompts to create a story, poem, essay or communal text in response to the artworks and read their work at a virtual showcase on Aug 13.
