Celebrating Poetry Month at International House, University of Chicago in Hyde Park, the International Spoken Word & Image event took place on April 9, 2011.

Among the activities of our program we enjoyed a presentation on Semiotics by board member Dr. Stephen Hill from Northwestern University (Dr. Hill made Semiotics really interesting and engaging!)

It was followed by a special performance (dance and poetry) by Kuumba Lynx, Chicago Public Schools “Louder than a Bomb” Poetry Slam competitors.

Also, two Fulbright students, Chris Campe from Germany and Guillermo R. Gudiño from Mexico, both pursuing their degrees at the Art Institute presented their art work, in painting and photography respectively.
