Join the Burke Museum for an evening with poet Cedar Sigo, featured lecturer with the Bagley Wright Lecture Series on Poetry. 

Cedar Sigo was raised on the Suquamish Reservation and studied at The Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at the Naropa Institute. This lecture will attempt to uncover acoustic aspects of Sigo's poetry, addressing how components of singing, storytelling and texts by visual artists have formed his path. 

Works by Charles Reznikoff, Joy Harjo, Eileen Myles, Pitseolak, Gertrude Stein, dg Okpik, and Philip Guston will be shared and discussed.  

The first floor galleries will be open during the event, and books are available for purchase along with author signing. 

Reservations are free with a suggested donation. Please select the number of tickets you'd like to reserve next to your preferred donation amount. Proceeds support the Burke Museum's programs, exhibits, and collections.
