Special Events

First Fridays: Poetry Slam
Friday, May 2, 2014
5 – 8 PM (CDT)

The Poetry Slam invites poets to showcase their works in a raucous audience-juried event. Poets who wish to participate should prepare three original pieces, each under 3 minutes in length. Each poet will be provided the opportunity to present one of their works. In tournament style, poets will be eliminated each round until one is left standing as the Poetry Slam Champion.

Poets must register by contacting Janet Bloch at 219-874-4900 or jbloch@lubeznikcenter.org with your contact information.

J.W. Baz returns to host the Poetry Slam. He has participated in many slams across the country and is a sought after host.

Refreshments will be served. Admission is free.

Art & Earth Trail

Find Lubeznik Center for the Arts on the Michigan City/LaPorte loop of Northern Indiana’s Art & Earth Trail. Michigan City offerings include arts, summer theatre, Indiana’s only working lighthouse and a museum in the former lighthouse keeper’s house where you can climb to the top for a far-reaching view. Further inland, the historic community of LaPorte shows off its past in the holiday home tour and at a train museum where you can ride the rails. Along the way, you’ll meet miniature horses; discover fine dining, an old-fashioned ice cream parlor and a classic Italian restaurant that will deliver your dinner to the beach. Over 150 studios, galleries, markets, specialty shops and lodgings are participating. Learn more at the Art & Earth Trail website.
