New York City Poetry Festival - Milk Press Happening

From the Milk Press website: Imagine a space designed to elicit a response. A place so alive with art and stimulus that everyone who experiences it leaves with the seeds of inspiration already sprouting in their minds. Each chamber contains an intentional mix of poetry and visual art, performance and lighting design, climate control and music, fragrances and soundscapes, all unified in their mission to awaken your aesthetic impulse.

Milk Press Happenings is an event series designed to generate artistic collaborations. Each Happening results in a publishing project derived from the work that is presented and created on-site.
