Calling All Poets! Deadline extended

BYU Students are invited to submit poems related to Maynard Dixon's work for our next Poetry Jam! Deadline extended to February 2

Maynard Dixon (1875-1946), 'Roadside,' 1938, oil on canvas, 30 1/4 x 40 1/4 inches. Brigham Young University Museum of Art, 1974.

The MOA is hosting a Poetry Jam on February 9, and we want you to share poems related to the works of Maynard Dixon (who, in addition to his work as a painter, was a prolific poet himself!). Submissions are due at midnight on January 26!

To submit your own poem, please send it to by 11:59 PM on February 2, 2023. All poems must be the original works of BYU students and correspond to one or more works in the exhibition. Winners will have the chance to share their poems at the event, and all are invited to attend and listen!
