Last night the Museum was proud to host young writers from Booker T. Washington Magnet High for a reading “Word and Image.” Each work of prose and poetry was composed in response to a work of art on display at the Museum. Led by Mr. Foster Dickson, the expressions were a result of the annual Ekphrastic writing workshop at the Museum. Ekphrasis means a literary response to a work of art.
Selections from the student work include:
Adolph Alexander Weinman, Descending Night
John Kelly Fitzpatrick, Cotton Gin
Gift of Works Progress Administration, 1935.12
Rick Beck, Self Portrait
Gift of MMFA Patrons*, 2008.5
