Know thyself—lyrically! Join us in the self-portrait section of the Crystal Bridges at 10 exhibition as we explore how we can use poetry to create new visions of ourselves. By looking at examples and completing guided writing exercises, we’ll build our own lyrical self-portraits and craft ways to see into and beyond our identities, roles, and labels.
