Madison poets Katrin Talbot, Sara Parrell, Susan Elbe, and Jesse Lee Kercheval have launched the Bridge Poetry Series in collaboration with the Chazen Museum of Art. This series creates a unique venue for poetry in Madison and highlights ekphrastic poetry, or poetry about works of art. This reading is part of a semi-annual program of poetry about art. Twice yearly, about a dozen Wisconsin poets will be invited to write poems inspired by works in one of the museum’s temporary exhibition, directly linking art and poetry.
