Meet up with friends, Joslyn Art Museum curators, and Nebraska Writers Collective poets for a touch of art and verse at Joslyn Castle. We will gather every other month, through May, for an art talk/poetry pairing that explores a work from the Museum’s collection that has been selected by the public. Cast a vote on social media or the web, then show up to discover the crowdsourced pick, hear a curator’s take on the work, and experience a poet’s performance of an original piece inspired by it. Art and poetry amid exquisite architecture . . . perfectly lyrical!
