Looking Closely, Thinking Textually: A Museum Session with "Poetry and Image"
In February 2020, students enrolled in Visiting Lecturer Sam Ace's "Poetry and Image” course had the opportunity to look closely and think analytically about Barton Lidice Benes's AIDS Museum (Reliquarium) at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum.
Professor Jim Coleman describes a recent student dance performance at the Museum inspired by the artworks of Judy Pfaff. Three art majors, three experienced dance improvisers, and 20 beginning dance students participated in the performance.
