“Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks”. –Plutarch

Over the past ten years, HVCCA has been bringing together visual art with written word through Words that Paint and Writing the Walls. These programs provided the opportunity for words and image collaborations between poets and writers and director Mara Mills, We are thrilled to present the next installation: Writing the Walls II

HVCCA invited writers and poets to submit original works: poems, prose, and plays inspired by the works, and in some cases the actual words from the art, from the current art show at the HVCCA: WORD.

The project was especially designed for poets and playwrights who live and/or work in Westchester and Putnam County focusing attention on our home-front. A panel of judges selected 37 pieces from those submitted.

The selected poems/prose/plays are framed and placed near the work that served as their inspiration. Visitors may read them as they tour the exhibition. The selected work also will be put on the HVCCA website and collected into a book/binder in the museum’s library space.

A reading is scheduled for December 3rd.

Poets selected for Writing the Walls II are Donna Barkman, Loretta Oleck, Robert E. Miss, Karen Marie Marmur, Liz Burk, Tony Howarth, Bob Zaslow, Ceci Iacobuzio, Kathleen Caputo Nelms, Julie Nord, Moira Thielking, Michael Seri, Les Von Losberg, Merle Molofsky, Star Blossom Goddess, Catherine Wald, Patricia Horn O’Brien, Coni Koepfinger, Gene Tashoff, Marc J.
