Every year for the past 23 years, The Arts Center has put out an open call for original poems and artwork from K-12 youth in Linn & Benton counties. The submissions we received this year are displayed in our Corrine Woodman Gallery. Thank you to all the youth who submitted for sharing these wonderful poems with us!

We have invited our youth to come and read their poems at our live poetry celebration on Saturday, April 15, 5-6 pm, and you’re invited to come listen too! 


April is National Poetry Month! 

Help us to keep celebrating into April by adding to our Community Poem Wall through April,15 2023
