Thurs., Feb. 14, Art Mix/Local Love
Crocker Art Museum, 5 p.m., free with museum admission
“Ekphrastic” and “eclectic” are the words to remember when you spend an evening of love with Sacramento's newest poet laureate, Jeff Knorr. Join him for a gallery tour and write ekphrastic poems—or love poems—to your favorite Crocker Art Museum pieces or artists. Hear music by Project4Trees, the Bell Boys (pictured), Musical Charis, Autumn Sky and James Cavern, who'll repeat the performance of their 2012 Sammies collaboration for those who missed it or want to hear it again. Also, check out Tapigami, L/C Mural & Design, New Helvetia Theatre and Sol Collective—all part of the Arts & Business Council of Sacramento's Flywheel Arts Incubator project. 216 O Street, www.crockerartmuseum.org.
