Poets House Art Exhibition Program Supports Its Poetic Endeavors

Poets House exhibitions focus on both the physical and visual manifestation of poetry as well as works by visual artists that correspond to the poetic impulse. From individual works of art — including an original light-reflecting mobile by Alexander Calder and paintings by E. E. Cummings and Philip Guston — to full exhibits that highlight original manuscripts, drafts of poems, correspondence, photographs, drawings, prints, paintings, books, and ephemera, Poets House is dedicated to both poetry and to the art of poetry.


A master list of all Poets House programs held from 1986 to the present can be found here.
