Walking With Poets IV: Choosing a Response (Ekphrasis: painting)
June 23, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, repeating until June 29, 2018
What is the dialogue between painting and word? Sometimes a good match provides an excellent prompt to a surprising insight. In the first session, we will analyze the craft of both art and poem and discuss correspondences as well as examine how different painters respond to the same subject. We will end the session at the Memorial Art Museum to choose a work of art or perhaps several works of art. The second session we’ll focus on writing and revising the poetic response to the art chosen. Entrance to the gallery is included with the course.
