This week Osbourn High School visited for an enrichment session with docent Vida. They shared reactions after hearing poetry which accompanied paintings by Janet Morgan Stoeke and sound recordings which accompanied ceramicist Jessica Gardner's sculpture. For the first time in the gallery QR codes linked the poetry and sounds to expand the art viewing experience. It is also the first time poetry has been featured with artwork, in this case, written by the artist. This type of poetry with art is called ekphrasis: Ekphrasis is a recontextualization or literary description of a visual work of art. The exhibit will be on display through October 29th.
