Virtual Poetry: Capturing “The Now”


Contemporary artists and writers react to the world around them by creating works with the power to capture—and perhaps even change—“the now.” In this intergenerational poetry workshop, Aldrich Educator Barb Jennes will lead participants in responding to recent news photos as they write powerful poems about the times in which we live. This workshop draws inspiration from the evolving Twenty Twentyexhibition.
