Since 2010, the Frazier History Museum has held an annual celebration of Edgar Allan Poe. As part of the 2018 event, the Museum will feature the live interpretive performance series: An Evening with Poe, original Poe related objects, and an exhibit of local student art celebrating the spirit of Poe's work. The evening's performances include: The Fall of the House of Usher, The Purloined Letter, The Bells, and many more featuring live music performed by The Tamerlane Trio.
Poe's name brings to mind images of murderers and madmen, premature burials, and mysterious women who return from the dead. In print since 1827, his works include such literary classics as The Tell-Tale Heart, The Raven, and The Fall of the House of Usher. Poe's versatile body of work includes short fiction, poems, a novel, a textbook, a book of scientific theory, and hundreds of essays and book reviews. He is widely acknowledged as the inventor of the modern detective story and innovator in the science fiction genre, but he made his living as America's first great literary critic and theoretician.
Every year, the Frazier partners with local schools to celebrate Poe’s legacy through artwork. The top-scoring pieces are featured in the Frazier’s Great Hall, and all submissions can be found in our online gallery. Special thanks to the students who contributed!
