As one of Denver's strongest voices and top female slam artists, we're excited to have her take the creative reigns at this month's Untitled event. 

We’re proud to announce that poet and author Suzi Q. Smith, is taking over Untitled Final Fridays on April 27! Suzi is a Denver icon and devoted mother, and a long-time collaborator with the Denver Art Museum. In addition to working as a teaching artist in Denver, Suzi Q. has toured the United States for over a decade. 

Among the most well-known performing poets in the country, she has shared stages with Nikki Giovanni, Talib Kweli, the late Gil Scott Heron, and many more over the years.

"I write and perform poetry, mostly as a means to understand myself and the world I live in. My work is born from both the voids and the excesses I experience, sometimes needing to say the unsaid things and sometimes needing to make art from a thought or feeling I can no longer contain."   

—Suzi Q. Smith
