F230 Mixed Methods: Collaboration Between Visual Art 
and Contemporary Poetry
Room 302, Western New England MFA Annex, Level 3

Friday, February 28, 2014

1:30 pm to 2:45 pm


When poetry and image intersect, what changes occur in both art forms? How is the artist’s process, and the reader’s experience altered when poetry and image enter into conversation with each other? Panelists will explore these questions and discuss how the two art forms can compliment, complete, and even translate each other. Poets who have published collaborative projects, or created poetry that incorporates self-made visuals, will discuss their work.
