Malibu Elementary School Poetry and Art Exhibition
Through the City of Malibu Arts in Education program, former Malibu Poet Laureate Ricardo Means Ybarra, with Jolynn Regan's assistance, conducted a series of virtual poetry workshops with Ms. Levy and Ms. Matthews' 5th-grade Malibu Elementary School students. The students learned about writing poetry then created a visual representation of their poem with art teacher Nicole Fisher. The individual art pieces were then transformed into a cohesive and collaborative poetry quilt sewn by StefanieColvig.
The Poetry Quilt has traveled to homes, schools and parks. We invite you to visit Malibu Bluffs Park, take a photo with the quilt, and use the hashtag #MalibuTravelingQuilt to be featured in the exhibition.
The poems and poetry quilt will be displayed in the windows of the Michael Landon Center from February 14 through March 28, 2021.
