THE RHYME AND REASON


 

"It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing."

Rhythm & Rhymes celebrates the cultural heritage of jazz and poetry through the lens of literature, spoken word, instrumentation, performance, and songs. Our public art programs are designed to shape thoughts, build a sense of community, and open the door for meaningful dialogue while knocking down the walls that constrain commonality.
