Poetry Jam 2023

Thursday, February 09
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
BYU Museum of Art

Hear original poetry by BYU students responding to works in the MOA exhibition Maynard Dixon: Searching for a Home at our next Poetry Jam! While Dixon is known as an artist, he also wrote poetry about the West, the people that inspired him, and his longing for a home.

There is a long tradition of writers and poets responding to art and we are excited to gather for a live ekphrastic evening!
