SATURDAY PICK | Get into Bridget Beck’s poetry machine at Franconia Sculpture Park


I think that I shall never see: a poem as lovely as a machine.

Artist Bridget Beck has created a whimsical interactive sculpture intended to inspire poetry, and Franconia Sculpture Park is celebrating the sculpture’s installation with a two-day poetry event featuring creative writing workshops and performances by Cromulent Shakespeare Company. If Beck’s poetry machine doesn’t fire your creative circuits as effectively as you hoped, Franconia will provide technical assistance by poets including Heid Erdrich and Dobby Gibson.
