Poets for Art – Saturday, April 7, 10 am – 4 pm
Students in grades 8 – 12 are invited to participate in a poetry workshop with Louisiana Poet Laureate Jack Bedell. Workshop participants tour the museum and Besthoff Sculpture Garden to select a work of art that inspires or engages them. Working with a professional writer, students will develop and write a poem. Students are invited to submit their completed poem to NOMA for publication in a soft-bound book which will be mailed to all participants. Experienced and novice poets are invited to apply. Lunch is provided.
