4x4CLT SERIES 5 | APRIL 2017

We’re taking poetry out of books and art off gallery walls and bringing them to you.

4X4CLT is Charlotte Lit’s poetry+art showcase series. Four times a year, on the 4th of March, June, September and December, we’ll release four different posters featuring four poems and four works of art. For each release, a reading and presentation will be held with featured poets and artists. After each event, the posters will be hung in public places throughout the city—coffee shops, waiting rooms, libraries, storefronts. To display these posters in your place of business, send a request to lisaz@charlottelit.org.

Have you seen a 4X4CLT poster at a favorite hangout?  Snap a picture and tag CharlotteLit on Instagram!

4x4CLT is made possible by a generous grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
