Soon Come: Poems Painted & Spoken is a multi-media art exhibit and poetry performance by Yvonne Fly Onakeme Etaghene and will debut Etaghene's visual art. Her art is acrylic and spray painted visual poems passionately splashed on canvas and wood surfaces in order to share the colors of her soul. The space will have life-size poetry hanging around you, video art as well as a loving, tender, soul-deep performance of Etaghene's poetry spanning the last decade of her career. The poems shared will be about the revelry, magic, heartache and angst of love. Etaghene gives you these poems and paintings with open palms and heart, reaching to love you, ever more, ever deeper.
