Art + Poetry “Between Play and Grief”
Enjoy a unique literary experience as the MFAH collaborates once again with Tintero Projects. In the galleries of Between Play and Grief: Selections from the Latino American Collection, five professional Houston writers perform written pieces inspired by works of art from the exhibition.
Following the performances, grab a notepad and pencil to write your own poem, short story, dialogue, or other work inspired by the art. Writing prompts are available, or you can go your own way and write about whatever moves you! Paper and writing implements are provided, but feel free to bring your own, too.
Before the program, head over to Happy Hour Thursday for a drink and a bite. Stick around after the event to talk to the writers about their creative processes, how they selected their works of art, and what inspires them.
Juan Avalos, Natasha Carrizosa, Alexander P. Garza, Yeiry Guevara, Amanda Ortiz
