The Word, The Sound, and The Image: Meditations on "Harlem Renaissance, Civil Rights Era, and Beyond" will be at Hunter Happens, Thursday, 6 p.m. at the Hunter Museum. 

Musician, DJ and spoken word poet Christian Collier and other local performers will bring the paintings in the special exhibition to new meaning and life, performing on themes that travel from the past to the present, from the paintings to the living soul.

This artful yoga session is in conjunction with national slow art day, as participants slow their pace and explore centering for body mind and soul.

Open to all levels.  Participants must bring own mat as the Hunter does not own mats.  Registration is not required.
