Poetry in the Galleries

Create poetry with poets in the galleries

This fall, discover the MFA's special exhibitions through poetry. Partnering with Mass Poetry, the MFA presents three poets-in-residence to share their work and invite you to create your own poems inspired by the artwork. For all ages and abilities. Materials and instruction will be provided.
