Inspired Art Sneak Peek: A look at the art and poetry

The DC SCORES Inspired Art Gala is just more than two weeks away, and over the last month local and national artists have been generously creating pieces of art to donate to the new fundraiser.

We have landscapes and abstract art; watercolor paintings, oil paintings, ceramic pottery pieces and other types of art. Most of the art is in, and we're expecting 60 pieces of artwork to be featured alongside DC SCORES poetry at the silent auction tables on May 19 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.

Of course, that gives you an idea of the variety of art that will be featured at the gala. But you can only do so much imagining. So beginning this week, we're featuring donated pieces of art paired with poems on the Inspired Art website. Check out the site each Tuesday and Thursday leading up to the event to see the new highlighted art-poetry combination -- and others.

And then buy your ticket(s) to the event so you can see the large collection of pieces and be treated to performances by DC SCORES poets as well as professional spoken-word musicians.

The first DC SCORES Inspired Art Gala is quickly approaching and tickets are limited. Get a sneak peek of the event here, and then secure your ticket for what should be a truly unique and inspiring evening.
