Join us for an afternoon of creative writing at the Henry led by poet Shin Yu Pai. Explore the ways that text can help navigate, capture, and create new experiences with visual and multi-sensory works of art. Participants will conduct poetic investigations in the galleries and take home drafts of new poems inspired by works of art in The Time. The Place. Contemporary Art from the Collection.
Shin Yu Pai is a poet, cross-media artist, and curator for the collaborative global exploration project Atlas Obscura. Her poetic origins inform an artistic style that has grown beyond the written word—manifesting in photography, installation and public art, cross-disciplinary collaborations, and sound. She recently completed a two-year term as the fourth poet laureate of the City of Redmond.
All levels welcome. Materials will be included but participants are invited to bring a notebook.
