Images from Ekphrasis: Writing on the Collection Images from Ekphrasis: Writing on the Collection

Ekphrasis is a term used to denote poetry or poetic writing concerning itself with the visual arts, artistic objects, and/or highly visual scenes. Purdue Galleries is sponsoring an opportunity for writers to compose creative writing in response to objects from the permanent collection. Those writings will be featured alongside the artworks in this exhibition. The exhibit will provide inspiration to young writers on campus and will be used as a springboard to introduce creative writing in local K-12 curriculum. In addition, the project will highlight the work of more accomplished writers and present artworks from the collection under a new light, with a fresh interpretation.
