Covering a vast range of backgrounds, views, and styles, Rhapsody & Refrain is a perfect way to discover and celebrate the homegrown art to be found everywhere in Columbus. Every day of the month features a poet – some highly lauded and published veterans, some at the beginning of their literary careers – performing a set of original work at the newly minted Streetlight Guild venue.
