The Manayunk-Roxborough Art Center concludes its series of 2017 exhibitions with Ekphrastic, a unique rhetorical device in which writing (typically poetry) is inspired by another visual art form to convey deeper symbolism and confer greater meaning.
For this show, MRAC Writer-Poets were invited to choose Artist CoOp works that speak to them and create new poems and written pieces around those works, which not only forges a stronger collaboration between MRAC CoOp Artist and Writer-Poet members, but also an explosion of creativity in the MRAC community.
MRAC is excited to share the results of this creative fusion and invites you to join us for the Opening Reception on Sunday, December 3, 2017, starting at 12PM. You will enjoy an array of visual arts with accompanying poetry, along with an aural experience while poets read their works aloud and answer questions about their processes starting at 2 PM. Admission is free, and donations are encouraged.
The show continues December 9 and 10 from 11AM till 3PM.
MRAC is located at 419 Green Lane (rear), Philadelphia, PA 19128. Nearby free street parking is usually available and there are two free lots in the area.
