The Allen Memorial Art Museum and Main Street Readings seek submissions of ekphrastic poetry for our upcoming April First Thursday evening hours. April is National Poetry Month and these hours will feature selections inspired by works on view at the AMAM galleries.
Submissions from ALL members of the public are welcome. We are especially interested in works from faculty, staff, students, and Oberlin community members.
Modern ekphrastic poetry encompasses responses or descriptions of works of visual art, such as painting, sculpture or photography. Submissions can be about any work of art currently ON VIEW in the AMAM galleries.
DUE DATE: Friday, March 22 by 5:00pm
Submissions can be emailed to AMAM Curator of Education, Jason Trimmer, at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or dropped off at the front desk of the AMAM.
The “Muse in the Museum” readings will take place at the Allen Memorial Art Museum on Thursday, April 4, beginning at 5:30pm. Authors must be able to attend and be willing to recite their readings to the public.
