Last Thursday, Lit Cleveland had the honor of hosting an open mic in conjunction with The Cleveland Museum of Art’s MIX event. Poet Damien Ware served as emcee as writers of all levels braved the mic and recited original poetry. The event's atmosphere felt like an homage to street culture. Jean Michele Basquiat’s exhibit was free for attendees as the DJ spun music from the likes of Grandmaster Flash, A Tribe Called Quest and The Wu-Tang Clan. The packed audience clearly enjoyed the mix of street culture and poetry partnered with the sophistication of the art world.
To create a strong community of readers and writers in Cleveland, Ohio through workshops, classes, readings and other events.
