August 7th, 2016 / Like Day and Night: Poetry Reading, Cambridge MA

Join Scott Ruescher and Ruth Lepson for an evening of contrasting yet complementary poetry at Gallery 263. The reading will start at 5:00pm

Scott administrates the Arts in Education program at the Harvard GSE and teaches English in the B.U. Prison Education Program. His recent publications include Sidewalk Tectonics and Perfect Memory. More importantly, he has been bantering poetics and world affairs with Ms. Ruth Lepson ever since he helped her arrange annual benefit poetry readings for Oxfam America by noted poets in the 1980s. This is the first time he’s had the pleasure of squaring off with her–gracefully complementing her–in a poetry reading.
Ruth is poet-in-residence at the New England Conservatory of Music and the author of ask anyone, I Went Looking for You, Morphology, and Dreaming in Color. Her poetry has appeared in journals that Scott would never deem to send his poems to, those being innovative publications, while he prefers the good old publications that promote more humane values.

Dec 13th, 2015 / Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston MA

Declared the first Happening and later named Theater Piece No. 1, an unnamed performance took place in August 1952 at Black Mountain College that would become one of the most famous events in the college’s history. The ICA has invited five Boston-based artists to reimagine Theater Piece No. 1 by proposing a series of actions that will take place in the ICA galleries and throughout the museum. In Poets in Ekphrasis, Danielle Legros Georges draws on the rich history of avant-garde poetry at Black Mountain College and invites several noted poets to read verse inspired by artworks in the exhibition.

Danielle Legros Georges is a writer and educator who teaches at Lesley University and was recently named Poet Laureate of Boston.

This reading included a performance by jazz musician Noah Preminger.
