This summer, the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art honors the creative life of Lawrence Ferlinghetti with the exhibition Cross-Pollination: The Art of Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s work, in both literature and art, is a drive for liberation, transformation, and union—through love, literature, political struggle, nature, humor, art. The exhibition, on view June 23 through September 23, 2012, focuses on key themes that have occupied the artist and poet throughout his creative life, in both word and image.
The Sonoma Valley Museum of Art is located at 551 Broadway in Sonoma, and they're open Weds through Sun, 11am– 5pm. Admission is $5; free for students in grades K-12. Free for all visitors every Weds! More info at www.svma.org or by calling (707) 939-7862.
