Create Your Own Poetic Masterpiece

date Saturday, 2 March 2013 time 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

👤 Willona Sloan 🏢 National Portrait Gallery atrium


We will take a private tour of the National Portrait Gallery exhibition, Poetic Likeness: Modern American Poets, with a Portrait Gallery guide and then write poetic masterpieces of our own. The exhibition includes portraits of celebrated poets such as Langston Hughes, Sylvia Plath, Robert Frost, Allen Ginsberg and many more! This fun program will include an hour-long interactive tour of the show and then you will have time to do some independent writing, where you can “remix” classic poems by the depicted artists or create your own poetic responses to the portraits.

*Please note: no backpacks or pens are allowed in the galleries.

This is not a KCDC event. It is produced by another organization. We include it because we think that it will be of interest to our students.
