Forms and Features: Poetry and the Collective Experience


Date: Thursday, March 7
Time: 6-8pm
Location: Gallery 400

This poetry discussion and creative writing workshop led by Maggie Queeney begins as a conversation with our current exhibition, All have the same breath.

After engaging with the exhibition, participants read and discuss poems that explore the artworks’ prevalent themes. Together, we compose a collaborative poem that uses breath, repetition, and visualization to describe our individual and collective experiences and relationship to the earth.

The workshop is free and open to all but space is limited. Reserve your space here.
