Words & Art is a reading series organized by Mary Wemple where writers create works inspired by the installations at Rice Gallery. Each reading features poetry and prose by local poets and writers and takes place in the gallery with the art as its stage. The series is a celebration of the many ways art can inspire us.
Write something based on or inspired by the art. Open to all forms: poetry, prose, essay, flash fiction, etc. One page limit. If you need help getting started, attend a free Writing Workshop! We have workshops specifically catered to children and to adults. See our calendar page for more information.
