NW MI Arts & Culture Network
The Art of Cross Pollination: A Visual Reading & Writing Workshop
Join us as we explore the fecund intersections between poetry and visual art with interdisciplinary artist Jen Sperry Steinorth. A professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and Northwestern Michigan College.
The evening will include a brief reading from Steinorth’s visual poetry book, Her Read, A Graphic Poem and a generative writing workshop. Not only will participants draw inspiration from art in the Dennos galleries, but we’ll explore writing exercises that apply techniques used by visual artists to sharpen our sight, loosen our minds and let linguistic surprises flow. Beginning and experienced writers alike will leave with a host of exercises they can integrate into their creative practice.
Materials are provided but participants are encouraged to bring their own materials as well.
This event takes place at Dennos Museum Center on Thursday, April 7th at 6:30pm.
This is a free event with required registration beforehand.
This workshop is limited to 25 participants.
