Writing in the Galleries with Patricio Ferrari

Thursday, September 15, 2022
5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Writers of all levels are invited to participate in this informal exploration of the Museum’s galleries as an impetus to writing. Monthly sessions are led by a visiting writer who begins with a conversation and prompt, partially inspired by works on view. Participants write on their own, then reconvene to share and comment on each other’s work. Please bring something on which to write.

The September session is led by multi-lingual poet, editor, and translator Patricio Ferrari in Going Global: Abstract Art at Mid-Century.
