The winners of the ARTlines competition for ekphrastic poetry (poetry inspired by art)
ARTlines is a juried competition organized by Public Poetry in collaboration with The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH). Nine works of art were selected by the MFAH curatorial staff, and the competition invited poets to submit original poems inspired by these artworks.
The winning poems will be showcased at an event at 3:00 PM in the Brown Auditorium at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston on Saturday, April 21, 2012, and will also be featured in audio recordings, print and electronic media. The five judges, as well as some acclaimed, nationally recognized poets, will be invited to present ekphrastic poems as well.
