After a brief winter break, the “Make Some Noise” Open Mic Night returns at Piedmont Arts on Thursday, Feb. 8, at 7 p.m. in the galleries. Hosted by local writer Monique Holland, the community is invited to come share their original poetry, spoken word, music, and comedy at this free event. A cash bar will be available with beer and wine.

Grab the mic and express yourself through music, poetry, comedy or spoken word. Anything that you have written or created can be showcased at this series. Slots will be capped at five minutes to ensure everyone gets a chance to share their work and shine. Piedmont Arts is thrilled to create an event that will allow the artists of Southwest Virginia to share their work in a supportive and exciting space.

The event will be hosted by Monique Holland. As a reporter for the Martinsville Bulletin, Holland’s words have had a tremendous impact on Martinsville and Henry County. Holland is a constant and beloved creative presence in the community and the museum is thrilled to have her support as emcee for this event.
