On May 20, 2010, in the museum foyer, WITS students will read poems and prose based on The Menil Collection’s exhibitions of art by Joaquin Torres-Garcia and Maurizio Cattelan. In addition, student editors from Glass Mountain, the undergraduate literary journal from the University of Houston, will read work in response to the WITS student work and the Menil exhibitions. The stories and poems will reflect how writing and art can become a kind of dialogue, interacting with and responding to one another. Noted art critic Susie Kalil will host this reading.
