Ut Pictura Poesis: Walt Whitman and the Poetry of Art

TAGS: Art Contemporary Exhibit Gallery Gallery Opening Latin Lecture Museum Family Friendly Special Event Museum
Wed 9/25 - Sun 12/29

This exhibition examines the impact of Whitman’s work on American life and culture, past and present, by drawing connections between his ideas, motifs, symbolism, and persona, and contemporary artistic responses. The combination of archival materials and works of art encourages viewers to reflect on the symbiotic relationship between literature, cultural criticism and visual art. While previous exhibitions have addressed Whitman’s influence on the artists of his time, Ut Pictura Poesis: Walt Whitman and the Poetry of Art is unique in that it explores the impact of the poet’s work on a select group of contemporary artists. Bridging past and present, the objects on display speak to Whitman’s humanist approach and social sensibilities as well as to the artists’ engagement with his thought and legacy. Works by Leonard Baskin, David Hockney, and Sara VanDerBeek are displayed alongside Whitman’s manuscripts, photographs, and illustrated first editions of his seminal texts.
