Additional information

Join artist, poet, and educator Lio Olin to learn about the long history of ekphrastic writing. Ekphrasis, from the Greek word for the written description of a visual work of art, has changed the way we approach and view visual art. The group will first gather in the modern and contemporary art galleries to take part in guided writing exercises about a work of your choice. That work will then provide inspiration for the creation of your own mixed-media collage.
