The Ohio Poetry Association celebrates the release of a volume of ekphrastic poetry, including the work of poets form Northwest Ohio who will be reading their work, some of which is inspired by work in the TMA Collection. A book signing will immediately follow this event.
March 12 at 2 P.M. in the Little Theater
A Rustling and Waking Within , a celebration of art and poetry in Ohio. Edited by poet Sharon Fish Mooney, The 139-page perfect-bound book contains ekphrastic poems written by friends and members of OPA in response to various forms of art featured in Ohio's museums, galleries and other venues. The collection marks the culmination of several OPA writing events that were held in major art centers throughout Ohio.
Mooney hopes that “through this collection, the reader will want to view art that is currently located in Ohio or that has traveled through Ohio. We want the reader to get up close and personal by visiting the various venues where the art resides. Through these poems, we hope readers will experience some of what we as poets experienced when we viewed it.”
