Museum Mondays: Finding Your Muse 

Are you searching for your muse? Are you yearning to be inspired on toward creative brilliance? Look no further than the Wright Museum of Art’s newest creative workshop “Museum Musings.” These 30-minute workshops will begin with a brief introduction on a museum object(s) followed by an open creative period with the opportunity to share object-inspired poems, flash-fiction, sketches, drawings, interpretive dance, and song. The first of these events occurred Monday March 21 from 12:30 p.m.-1 p.m. This laid-back workshop and writing time is designed to be a source of inspiration for anyone looking to expand their body of creative work. All are welcome. 

As part of the ongoing series of events for the courses Writing in Public and Literature in Public, the Wright Museum will be hosting this series of workshops geared toward inspiring creative production in its participants. As an application of liberal arts in practice, these workshops will feature a brief informational session on a museum object followed by open time for creativity. Students are encouraged to bring journals, sketch-pads, instruments, and any other items needed for their individual creative processes.
