In addition to on stage events, the 2015 Wordstock features exciting pop-up readings and musical performances throughout the Portland Art Museum galleries.
The 2015 Wordstock pop-ups highlight the intersections between the visual art at PAM and the literature and music presented at the festival. Experimental poetry will be performed in front of abstract sculpture, folk music will be heard in the gallery of landscape photography, and historical fiction will be read next to portraits from the same time and place.
