Section: A

CRN: 1256

Credits: 3

Writing from Art at The Met New York City has a long tradition of artistic exchange and collaboration between writers and painters and of exchange between writing and the visual art. This class explores the galleries of one of the city’s preeminent art museums,The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which has extensive online resources. We spend time exploring the collections and current exhibitions and writing flash fiction and “ekphrastic” poems, and other creative pieces responding to art. A final project, containing each student's original writing during the course, will be due on the last day of class.
