Joslyn Art Museum - Art and Verse Series
Art and Verse – a program of Joslyn Art Museum, in partnership with Joslyn Castle & Gardens
Meet up with friends, Joslyn Art Museum curators, and Nebraska Writers Collective poets for a touch of art and verse at Joslyn Castle. We’ll gather every other month, September through May, for an art talk/poetry pairing that explores a work from the Museum’s collection that’s been selected by the public. Cast a vote on social media or the web, then show up to discover the crowdsourced pick, hear a curator’s take on the work, and experience a poet’s performance of an original piece inspired by it. Art and poetry amid exquisite architecture... perfectly lyrical!
Wednesday, September 21, 2022 @ 6:30 pm (cash bar @ 6 pm)
Free to Joslyn and Castle members; $10 general public. Space is limited; advanced registration is recommended; walk-ins welcome if space permits.

Haynes holds a bachelor's degree in broadcast–production journalism and advertising and public relations with a minor in film studies from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
