Gallery Talk: Art and Poetry across the Collection

April 10, 2018
Meet in Gallery 100
Free with museum admission

What does it mean to “see” a poem rather than read it? How has poetry shaped the content, production, and interpretation of visual art across time and cultures? This tour will explore the way artists have bridged image and verse, ranging from ancient Chinese scrolls to modern American works.
