The two remaining installments of the GVSU Arts Celebration will be virtual presentations, according to the event's steering committee.

"The steering committee made the difficult decision to go virtual to avoid late changes and having to limit access to these events," said Monica Johnstone, who serves as the committee's project manager.

Here is information on the remaining presentations:

  • Poetry Night with Danez Smith, Ericka “Kyd Kane” Thompson, and Marcel “Fable the Poet” Price is March 14 at 7 p.m. All three of the writers are performers. Smith, a nationally celebrated poet, will join Thompson, the current Grand Rapids Poet Laureate, and Price, who previously served in that role.

  • The lecture with Hanif Abdurraqib will be held April 5 at 7 p.m. Abdurraqib, a poet, essayist and cultural critic, will share ideas from his latest book, A Little Devil in America: Notes in Praise of Black Performance. Following the lecture, Abdurraqib will join Louis Moore, associate professor of history, for a conversation.
