Smart Museum of Art
Smart Museum: Part I - Poetry Workshop
This lunchtime series with the Poetry Foundation and Smart Museum of Art takes us into the wild world of human relationships in ancient Rome and Renaissance Europe that is both strange and oddly familiar. Together, we’ll investigate themes of trauma, transformation, and love during our current Pandemic epoch through the lens of Ovid’s poetry.
In Part 1, Maggie Queeney and Dorian Nash will lead a lunchtime reading and discussion of an excerpt of Ovid’s poetry alongside a contemporary poem influenced by The Metamorphoses. Together, we will write our own poems exploring our connections to myth and transformation.
