Baltimore’s David Franks Remembered

Last Thursday, Baltimore poet, writer and artist David Franks died at the age of 61. He has been described as "a major artist of the late 20th century" in the company of "some of the best conceptual artists."

This Friday, January 22, WYPR's The Signal will dedicate the show to the life and owrk of David Franks. Tune in to the local NPR station, 88.1 FM, at noon or at 7 p.m.

A memorial is scheduled for 3 p.m. on Jan. 31 at the Creative Alliance at the historic Patterson Theater on Eastern Ave. followed by selected readings and a potluck reception.

The “Lit & Art at the Watermark” event originally scheduled for July 31 from 2 to 5 p.m. has been rescheduled in observance of this memorial. The next Lit & Art event will take place at the same time on the last Sunday in February.
