April is National Poetry Month!
Celebrate “poetry’s vital place in our culture" by visiting this new exhibit from the Corcoran Art & Design Collection, focusing on the relationship of poetry and art as illustrated through artists’ books. The display features the numerous artists’ books from the collection that utilize poetry or lyrics as a basis for artistic expression in book form.
Pages of some of the volumes in the display cases will be changed throughout the exhibition so that visitors will have the opportunity to view the range of images in the books.
