Gallery Talk: Art and Poetry across the Collection



Admission actions

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.
