TGIF Performance with Cheryl Savageau

September 2 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Rough Point

Join us in the Formal Garden at Rough Point Museum for a performance by  Cheryl Savageau, Abenaki poet, and Pulitzer Prize nominee. Savageau’s poetry retells Abenaki stories, often focusing on the unrecognized lives of women and the working class, enriched by the landscape and ecology of New England. Blankets, picnics, and chairs are welcome.

Doors open at 6 p.m., and the performance begins at 6:30 p.m.

Funding provided in part by a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the Rhode Island General Assembly, a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and private funders.

Please note: This program is scheduled to take place outside on the grounds of Rough Point. In the event of inclement weather, this program will move indoors to the Great Hall; visitors will then be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination upon check-in and wear a mask inside the museum. Notice will be sent in advance of location changes, and refunds will be issued if needed.
