Who is an artist and what is art? Eleanor Perry-Smith brings musicality and poetic grace to this question in a performance of three original poems.

Eleanor Perry-Smith has been writing poetry since she was 10 years old, spurred on by her father’s love of verse. A longtime member of Denver’s creative community, she’s contributed her voice through poetry, prose, and arts journalism. Eleanor served as editor of Modern In Denver magazine and Zephyr Press short fiction and poetry journal. Her current book, Revelry & Rhyme, illustrates her poetic range, while her videos and live recitations showcase her resolute melodic style.
