An Acrostic Invitation to the Ivory Tower Launch Party

A very real friend of ours asked the other day, “What are you doing the night of April 26th?” At that, we responded with an acrostic poem, as one naturally does:


Interesting you should ask, very real friend of ours!

Very few extravaganzas compare to the one we’re attending that night.

Oh! And of course, you’re invited, too! Everyone is!

Roll on over to the Weisman Art Museum at 6:00 p.m.

You won’t want to miss this!


The 2017 Ivory Tower staff will be launching the new edition of our art and literary magazine.

Over 700 pieces were submitted this year—a record!—and this year’s edition will debut the best of the best.

We have a feeling you’re going to be impressed.

Everyone will get a fresh copy of the magazine to take home for the low price of $0.00!

Relish in the rich talent of fellow writers and artists on campus!


Listen to fiction, nonfiction, and poetry pieces read aloud by published contributors,

And admire the incredible artwork of fellow undergraduate students!

Unleash your inhibition—there will be delicious free food for the taking!

Nosh and libations will delight your sensations!

Cry tears of sweet, sweet catharsis!

Hear a live harpist play some R. Kelly! (Yes, that is really happening.)


Prepare for a night of great creative talent, great company, and great conversation.

And be sure to

Reel in your friends and family, in fact,

Tell everyone you know!

You’re invited to the Ivory Tower Launch Party! C’mon, let’s go!


You’re formally invited to the undergraduate art and literary extravaganza of the year: Ivory Tower’s launch party. The event will be hosted at the Weisman Art Museum on Wednesday April 26, 2017, at 6:00 p.m. and is open to everyone. We hope to see you there! No acrostic poems will be read—we promise.
