As part of the Museum’s ongoing writing series, you are invited to in-gallery writing sessions facilitated by MFAH staff members.

This session focuses on the colorful images in the exhibition Modernism on the Ganges: Raghubir Singh Photographs. Special prompts have been developed by award-winning Houston writer and professor Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. Both her book Leaving Yuba City: Poems and her May 20 appearance at the MFAH are inspired by Singh’s work.

Follow the themes and prompts provided, or work on your own independent project using the mediators’ expertise for brainstorming, feedback, and editing. The last half hour of the session offers time for group sharing in the galleries. Plus, you can submit your written pieces for an opportunity to be featured on the MFAH blog and/or social-media platforms!

While you’re here, you may find additional inspiration from the gallery concerts by sitar musician Aaron Hermes at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.

RSVPs encouraged! Contact AEprograms@mfah.org
