National Poetry Month at The Westmoreland Saturday April 12, 2014 - 04/25/2013Special Events
National Poetry Month at The Westmoreland
April is National Poetry Month and The Westmoreland invites you to enjoy, explore, and experience the art of poetry and the poetry of art with us. We've created three events that will encourage you to engage with poetry in very different ways.

Whether you're a poet, a lover of poetry or simply in search of an artistic adventure, these experiences will satisfy your creative side!

Saturday, April 12th from 11 AM-2 PM: Slow Art Day will feature a special poetry reading alongside artwork in the galleries.

Wednesday, April 16th 5-7 PM: Open Mic Poetry Night
If you are an aspiring poet who writes original poetry or a lover of poetry who wants to share published poems with an audience, please join us for Open Mic Poetry Night in celebration of National Poetry Month!

Anyone who is in high school or older is welcome to share their original poems with an audience. Lovers of poetry are welcome to join in the fun and read or recite favorite poems.

The event is free and open to the public.

If you plan to recite or read poems, please contact Joan McGarry, Director of Education & Visitor Services at 724-837-1500 ex. 119 or jmcgarry@wmuseumaa.org

Friday, April 25th 6-8 PM ($7 per person): Come to the Cabaret!
Prepare to discover how lively and alive the arts can be.

Join poet Frank Klapak and artist Brian McCall for an event that is part performance and part happenstance as they explore the language of the arts through visual, spoken and musical vocabulary. In the spirit of true cabaret, anything can and probably will happen and all of it promises to be an evening you will never forget!

Enthusiasm and a sense of adventure are highly encouraged.

Audience engagement and participation welcome.

Wine, beer and light bites will be served.

Putt Putt Party Saturday November 08, 2014 Special Event
Putt Putt Party
Step up to the tee to raise a little green for the Greensburg YMCA and the Westmoreland Museum of American Art childrens programs!

Putt Putt Party 2013 was a Hole in One: in it's first year, thanks to our 120 guests and 16 sponsors, the event raised almost $10,000 in proceeds for the Strong Kids Campaign and Imagine Nation programs.

This year, let's tee off for a second round with double the fun, double the attendance, and double the proceeds! The Second Annual Putt Putt Party will feature a nine-hole miniature golf course designed and built by students at the Central Westmoreland Career and Technical Center and transformed into works of art by local artists. This year, the artists will base their designs on paintings from The Westmorelands collection, and the course will be set inside the Museums temporary location on route 30, Westmoreland @rt 30.

For $50 dollars, you will not only support two great children's programs, but also enjoy food stations from some of the area's best local restaurants, a bar including several Putt Putt cocktails, live music, creative takes on the Museum's art collection and tons of Putt Putt fun! Bring your own team, come as a single golfer or even a spectator and join in the party!

The course will also be open for our Imagine Nation and Strong Kids families to come and enjoy for free on Sunday, November 9, 2014 from 11 AM - 3 PM (no registration required).
