Wagner’s work on display downtown


Westfield’s Shari Wagner is one of nearly 20 poets delivering new works inspired by Hoosier landmarks – barn, clock, theater, brick kilns, ballpark, mill and more. The work and talents of Wagner and other poets will be showcased during an event presented by Indiana Landmarks and Brick Street Poetry, Inc.

Each artist selected a different landmark to inspire a poem – from the defunct Medora brick kilns in southern Indiana to the gloriously restored Lerner Theatre in Elkhart, the subject of Wagner’s work. The live, multi-media performances made possible by a grant from Indiana Humanities and Indiana Landmarks with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The event, which is open to the public, is at 7 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Indiana Landmarks Center in Indianapolis. To reserve your free tickets, visit www.landmarklyrics.eventbrite.com or call Indiana Landmarks at 639-4534.
