Spend the week sharing and talking about what artists and art forms move us. We will look at art and talk to artists. Moved to Speak: Poetry in Dialog with Art explores old and new ways poems have been written in response to art. When we connect deeply with a painting or other piece of art we often want to write about the experience. But, how? Let the painting speak? Shed light on the imagery? Expand the story? We will play with various techniques and craft our poems in a supportive and generous workshop environment. One anthology calls such poems the “museum of words.” Let’s call it a week of poets having fun and going crazy for art in the beautiful light of Ghost Ranch!
