Ron translates Anne Sexton into a cocktail
For Poetry Scores' celebration of Anne Sexton's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" this Friday at Mad Art Gallery, Ron Buechele of Mad Art (and Capitalist Pig) is translating the poem into cocktails. Mad Art's cash bar will be serving five distinct Poison Apples.
We had suggested a Poison Apple pouring station where the patron is asked to "name your poison" to mix with apple juice, but Ron is more deliberate than that (and, he said, lots of alcohol doesn't mix well with apple juice).
So Ron has named your poisons. Five of them:
Pearl Apple Pie (vodka)
Pearl Apple Pie
Three Olives Cake (vodka)
Jim Beam Honey
Try all five! As long as you're not driving home.
Poetry Scores also will be serving finger foods as translations from the poem, not to mention Ann Hirschfeld's live musical score of "Snow White," interspersed with 12 women reading the poem, and an art invitational of work based on the poem curated by Heather Corley.
