CHICAGO | November 6, 2014 at 6:30 at Intuit: The Center for Intuitive and Outsider Art, I'll be leading a workshop on ekphrastic poetry where we will engage in contemplative responses to two amazing works of art. It's free and open to the public. Please check below for details!
In conjunction with Ekphest: A Festival of Art + Word (a community wide celebration engaging poetry and visual art), Chicago-based writer RJ El will lead a writing workshop inspired by works of art from Intuit’s permanent collection. Rooted in the theme of intuitive and self-taught art, the workshop will encourage the quiet engagement of meditative consciousness with the work, and lead to a collage-like collaboration of constructing words and image from the disparate elements of reference drawn from the works of art.
