Sunday, October 15th:

Ecstatic Ekphrastic Visions: Word Cabaret tours the BWAC Galleries. Word Cabaret commissions a bevy of Brooklyn-based writers to pen original monologues, poems, and stories, each inspired by an artwork in BWAC’s Fall member show. Reserve a spot on a “tour” to hear these words performed by professional actors under the direction of Courtney L. Wetzel. Produced and hosted by John Istel
