Unpoetry at the Frye

Unpoetry at the Frye

Join us on a tour of Stephanie Syjuco: After/Images and Twilight Child: Antonia Kuo And Martin Wong with local poet and event organizer Eric M. Acosta, using Ekphrastic writing to explore the bond between language and art. The Frye's partnership with Unpoetry asks local writers to generate pieces based on current exhibitions, with the goal to inspire deeper engagement of the museum space and the artwork it holds.

About the Program

This quarterly program features a new lineup of poets for each event, providing a unique opportunity to experience the current exhibitions through their eyes, and the various ways one can approach, think, or feel through art.
