Ekphrasis (ek-phra-sis) /’ek-fre-ses/
Since Ancient Greece, artists and writers have been inspired by each other’s artform. This is the meaning and spirit of Ekphrasis. In this exhibit, selected artists & writers were paired and challenged to create new work. View 40 original works of poetry and prose and 40 artworks – and explore the subjective landscape of inspiration and creative interpretation.
