Ode to the ZIP Code Live Event

Ode to the ZIP Code Live Event

Your ZIP Code matters. It's not just an address, it's an identity.

For the fourth year in a row, The Fair Housing Center, The Arts Commission, Toledo Lucas County Public Library, and Toledo City Paper are partnering to host Ode to the ZIP Code! Toledo area residents penned short poems inspired by their ZIP Code, where the number of words in each line of the poem is determined by the corresponding digit in their ZIP Code.

Finalists have been chosen and will read their poems at a special event on April 18, 2019 at Handmade Toledo during the Art Loop. Winners will be selected from both the youth and adult categories and awarded cash prizes. The audience can join in by sharing zip odes during an open mic segment!

Top poems will also be published in the April 10 issue of the Toledo City Paper.

Last year's winning youth poem, by Tulia Pfeffinger:

4 Outside the house, waiting
3 To go in.
6 I’m nervous to see the inside
0 (holdingmybreathholdingmybreathholdingmybreath)
6 The door opens and I gasp—

April is both National Poetry Month and Fair Housing Month. The Ode to the ZIP Code event is a fun and creative way to engage the community in talking about where we live and how it affects our experiences and life outcomes. Inspiration for the contest came from the O, Miami Poetry Festival and WLRN-Miami Herald News, the originators of the “zip ode” concept.

Workshop : Alcohol Ink Ornaments

Whether you are a “creatively challenged” individual or an experienced artist, you will find new ways to express yourself with this fantastic medium and technique.

I will cover the basics of using alcohol inks. There will be a basic overview of the medium, and then we will go take what you’ve learned and create 4 unique Ornaments to take home at the end of the class.

13+ and all skill levels welcome!

Feel free to BYOB!

About the Instructor:

Emily was introduced to alcohol inks early in 2016, and was hooked immediately. She spent more than she is willing to disclose to her husband and created more tiles than she could give away. This led to her opening her Etsy store, You Made Me Ink Design (https://www.etsy.com/shop/YouMadeMeInkDesign) and displaying her work at a fall craft show. She is hopeful that 2018 brings more opportunities to share her art with new people!
