About this Event

Writer April Pameticky

Join writer April Pameticky for an evening of art and writing! Pameticky will share her experience as WAM’s “Writer in Residence” last summer, including the poems she wrote inspired by works of art in the collection. Then try your hand at writing inspired by art through a guided experience in the galleries. All are welcome – from seasoned writers to those just curious about art and writing.
