Join poet Kathleen Aguero for Poetry in the Galleries
Join award-winning Boston poet and teacher Kathleen Aguero, and use writing poetry to help us see the extraordinary in the ordinary, much like artist Claes Oldenburg. Through writing and close observation prompted by “Claes Oldenburg: Shelf Life,” deepen your response to art and spark your literary imagination. No previous experience writing poetry required. All are welcome.
