Richard Blanco

07:30 pm - 10/15/2015

@ McKinney Performing Arts Center, Courtroom Theater

111 N Tennessee St
McKinney TX  75069



‘Rhythms of Pen and Brush’ was established to help foster collaboration between art forms and artists and provide an opportunity to share their work with audiences. In addition to Mr. Blanco, the evening will also feature work by visual artists, jazz musicians from the University of North Texas, poets and actors.

Mr. Blanco is the fifth poet ever to present at a president’s inauguration, following in the steps of previous poets Maya Angelou and Robert Frost. As a historic inaugural poet, public speaker, teacher and memoirist, he continues to travel the world, inviting audiences to reconnect to the heart of the human experience and all of its beautiful diversity. Through the power of his words and presence, Blanco taps into our unspoken dreams, hopes and frustrations. He captures the human spirit and condition, in all of its complexities, opening up our minds and encouraging us to see beyond our differences to share in the universal experience of our humanity.

Mr. Blanco will conduct a workshop for poets and high school/college students. The workshop has limited availability, and participants must register in advance. Register for workshop.
