Art & Words: Ekphrasis

When: Sat., May 6, 5-8 p.m. 2017

An exhibition of art and poetry—side-by-side — that includes artists and poets inspiring one another. Existing poetry was collected by invited poets and artwork was curated from artists throughout the Hudson Valley and New York Metropolitan area. Artists and poets were given the opportunity to choose selected poems or pieces of art that spoke to them and to create a new piece of art—be it a visual art piece or poem—based on the original inspiration. The challenge will be in determining which came first, the poem or the artwork.
