VISIONARY DRAW-A-THON, POETRY READING & POT LUCK SUPPER

SATURDAY, FEB 13
(Snow date Saturday, February 27)
5:00 PM
UCC CHURCH (150 CONGRESS AVE)
BATH

Think that we overspend on the military? Artists and poets are looking for new ways to visualize how we could spend the $2.5 billion that Maine taxpayers’ have spent on war!

Join us for a draw-a-thon/gathering of visionaries, artists, and non-artists in support of the Maine Campaign to Bring Our War $$ Home.

Artists and poets will assemble early on Feb 13 to create images and words showing how we could spend the $2.5 billion of Maine taxpayers’ money that has already been wasted on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

A community potluck dinner will be held after the draw-a-thon, followed by a poetry reading with Betsy Sholl (Maine's poet laureate), Henry Braun, Chris Crittenden, and others, and music by Hana Maris (5-8 PM).

Kenny Cole and Natasha Mayers are organizing this event, along with a new coalition of Maine peace groups called Bring Our War $$ Home.

Participating artists include: Abby Shahn, Alan Crichton, Alison Hildreth, Arthur Fink, Barb Sullivan, Brian Reeves, Bud Swenson, Carolyn Coe, Corliss Chastain, Diane Dahlke, Elizabeth Kelley, Emily Posner, Jean Noon; Joan Braun, Kenny Cole, Lynn Harwood, Martin Steingesser, Natasha Mayers, Nora Tryon, Pat Wheeler, Peter Buotte, Prison Inmates, Rob Shetterly, Robin Brooks, Ronnie Wilson, Shanna Wheelock, and Susan Beebe.
