Description:

Join us for a tour of our exhibitions, Hope and Hazard: A Comedy of Eros and Ready. Fire! Aim., followed by an ekphrastic poetry workshop led by Peter Money. From the Greek word meaning “description”, an ekphrastic poem is a vivid description meant to amplify and expand the meaning of a work of art. Participants will compose and share a poem inspired by one of the artworks on view.

His books include These Are My Shoes, A Big Yellow, Finding It: Selected Poems, Che: A Novella In Three Parts, and American Drone: New & Select Poems.
