Portland Museum’s Sound Experience

“POETRY IS – 
A SOUND EXPERIENCE”

As part of the Portland Museum’s Birthday Celebration and Re-Opening

Featuring Poets
Tyler Curth
Isiah Fish
Robert Eric Shoemaker

and Musicians
Maxfield Sparrow
A Girl Named Earl
Jerika Jones

Hosted by Robert Eric Shoemaker

“Poetry Is – A Sound Experience” is a local performance collective uniting poets and musicians to create unique poetry “reading” experiences with improvisational music. Sometimes entirely unrehearsed, these music and poetry moments are unpredictable and joyful community-building sound-bites that transform the atmosphere of the poetry reading into a dynamic space.

This experience was conceived with the help of Sarabande Books and the Sarabande Young Professionals Board.

Future performances include:
November, Writer’s Block Festival with Louisville Literary Arts
November, Frazier Museum in downtown Louisville.


Poetry Is Productions brings poetry into all that we do. With our name borrowed from a poet’s manifesto, our goal is to create art with a broadened sense of the definition of what “Poetry Is.”

(For You. For Me. For All.)
