Art & Writing Workshop: Writing the Waves

Date & Time: 
Wednesday, June 12, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Location(s): 
Central Library
201 W Mifflin St
Madison, WI

Led by Artist-in-Residence: Lydia & Riley This workshop will use the practice of ekphrasis — in which a piece of writing responds to another work of art — to explore oceanic concepts and themes.  We will consider exemplary work in this genre written both in prose (Michelle Cliff’s essay “Oblique Brilliance,” a reflection upon and dialogue with the visual art of Ellen Gallagher) and poetry (Howard Moss’ “Painting A Wave”) before undertaking our own experiments. No experience needed; ages 15+
