Look for this workshop
next season!

Artists and writers, welcome the 826michigan Museum of Contemporary and Not-So-Contemporary Art! Join us for an adventure in ekphrasis, which is the Greek word for description AND a brilliant kind of poetry, one writers use to describe, explore, and even compare pieces of art. In this workshop, we’ll read one of our favorite books about art, Bonjour, Mr. Satie by Tomie de Paola, and then we’ll take the time to write some ekphrastic poems of our own, using tools that poets use to make their work more vivid. We’ll end the evening by reading our poems aloud with each other, under the spell of the art in our lab.
