[Note: As part of her ongoing project 30x30x30, poet Stephanie Pruitt is writing a poem each day for 30 days on site in response to a different work in the Frist Center's current exhibit 30 Americans, which spotlights art by 30 leading artists, all African American.

DAY 13 — 11.8.13
Poem: "Field of Dreams"
In relation to: "One Day and Back Then (Seated)," by Xaviera Simmons
Day 13 is luck-filled indeed. Today's vlog offers a bonus — not one, but two poems! In addition to my draft inspired by Xaviera Simmons' work, you'll hear a community drafted poem that I "quilted" together during a creative engagement activity at the Frist's MAQ Attack teen night.
