@Denver Art Museum, 100 W. 14th Avenue, Hamilton Building - Level 1
Pick up a pencil and spark your creative interests in these informal writing sessions. With the help of Michael Henry, Lighthouse's Executive Director, try your hand at a new writing topic every month, while visiting various museum galleries. Meet in the El Pomar Grand Atrium of the Hamilton Building, level 1. All experience levels welcome, bring your own supplies or use one of our notebooks. On Tuesday, May 26 we'll take a look at Writing the Body -The human form has inspired artists for ages, and writers are no exception. More recently, science has given us new ways of considering the human form--as something to control, to fix, to heal. In this session, check out the new exhibition Starring Linda: A Trio of John DeAndrea Sculptures, take a look at the rich literature of writing about the body--in fiction, poetry, and science, too--and practice close description.
