Alright, BONK! Family– send out good weather vibes because this month we are planning on hosting 3 raw features on the outside patio of the Racine Art Museum!  Of course, if it rains, that just means we’ll be surrounding by gorgeous art inside the museum for the event.  But this is one you do not want to miss, so mark it on your calendars and check out the dope line up we’ve got below:

JENNIFER MORALES is a multi-genre writer (poetry, fiction, nonfiction) and a performance artist. In her writing, she wrestles with questions of gender, power, identity, complicity, and harm. Even so, she still finds the world beautiful.  Meet Me Halfway, her collection of short stories about race relations in Milwaukee, was published by University of Wisconsin Press in spring 2015.  Morales lived for more than twenty years in Milwaukee, where she raised children and served on the Milwaukee Board of School Directors—the first Latino/a elected to it. She earned her MFA from Antioch University–Los Angeles. She now lives in Viroqua, Wisconsin, and is a board member of the Driftless Writing Center.

SCOTT WOODS is the author of We Over Here Now (2013, Brick Cave Books) and Urban Contemporary History Month (2016, Brick Cave Books).  He has published and edited work in a variety of publications. He has been featured multiple times in national press, including multiple appearances on National Public Radio. He was the President of Poetry Slam Inc. and emcees the Writers’ Block Poetry Night, an open mic series in Columbus, Ohio. In April of 2006 he became the first poet to ever complete a 24-hour solo poetry reading, a feat he bested with six more annual 24-hour readings without repeating a single poem.

OH MY LOVE is an electronic pop duo out of Madison, WI comprised of Hannah Luree and Christian Lisser. Oh My Love’s sound is driven by powerful vocals, glistening melodies, driving synth, and heavy-hitting, hip-hop, electronic beats.  Their third release, “Ghosts & Bubblegum,” was released in May of 2016 to abundant critical acclaim.  All of their albums can be heard at http://ohmylove.bandcamp.com/ or visit them at their website http://www.ohmylovemusic.com .
