After/Words

After/Words 

After/Words is the culmination of a semester long journey partaken by English 210, a poetry workshop under the guidance of Francesca Abbate, the 2013/14 George S. Parker Faculty Curator.  Early in the semester, students enrolled in the course visited the Wright Museum of Art and, working closely with museum director Joy Beckman and curator James Pearson, chose works of art from the Wright Museum’s collections that spoke to the respective students.  After that, the students researched their chosen work, spent time with it, mulled over it, let it consume them, and, over the course of a number of weeks, produced a series of poems that, in some way, relate to the work.  English 210 would like to thank to James Pearson, Joy Beckman, Meredith Root and John Kaufmann for their help and support.
