CMA Writer-in-Residence Ray McManus hosts a half-day event celebrating poetry and visual art. Participants work closely with award-winning and nationally acclaimed poets Nickole Brown, Jessica Jacobs, and Ashley M. Jones, who each lead a workshop that broadens the relationships writers can have with visual art. Designed for writers at any stage of their career or interest, these workshops provide prompts for generating ideas as well as strategies on how to create effective poems that expand (and even challenge) the conversations and reactions writers and patrons have when encountering art. Brown, Jacobs, and Jones also read from their award-winning work, and a reception with a book signing will follow.
This project is supported by a grant from the Knight Foundation Fund and by a Connected Communities grant at Central Carolina Community Foundation with additional support from the Poetry Society of South Carolina.
$20 / $10 for museum members / $5 for students with ID. Registration required for workshops and includes admission to the galleries, including Van Gogh and His Inspirations. The public reading, book signing, and reception are free.
