Event Description:

Virtual “meet the artists” reception for YAWP, WWBA’s group art exhibition on view in person through January 7, 2022.

An exhibition featuring local artists’ interpretations of Section 52 from Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself”. “The spotted hawk swoops by and accuses me, he complains of my gab and my loitering. I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable, I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world…” Each artist will be included in a temporary exhibit in our Gathering House that will be on view during tours of the Birthplace. Due to the need for social distancing, the in-person exhibit is currently postponed; however we are very excited to present all of the artwork that was submitted online in video format.
