Posted on August 17, 2016 by cmoore

In October 2015, poets gathered at the museum for a day-long workshop focusing on ekphrastic poetry, the description in verse of a work of art. Visiting Shadows and Dreams: Pictorialist Photography in America, they found plenty of inspiration. Pictorialist photographers emphasized creativity and personal expression in their work, and the photographs in the exhibition represent a wide range of imaginative, artistic visions. After looking closely at the exhibition, each poet selected one or two of the photographs on view to use as a focus for the day’s writing.
