Starting with Art with Joseph Stanton

Jun 18, 2016 | 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Joseph Stanton

Joseph Stanton, a widely published poet who happens also to be an art historian, offers a workshop that will go beyond ekphrasis to encourage the writing of poems in response to any and all forms of artistic experience. Participants will be provided approaches to use when writing poems in response to witnessings and/or participations in such forms as paintings, movies, fairy tales, plays, and sports events. Poetry as a means of inquiry will be the emphasis throughout.

Joseph Stanton’s five poetry books are Things Seen, Imaginary Museum: Poems on Art, A Field Guide to the Wildlife of Suburban Oahu, Cardinal Points: Poems on St. Louis Cardinals Baseball, and What the Kite Thinks: A Linked Poem (co-authored with Makoto Ooka, Wing Tek Lum, and Jean Toyama). His other books include Looking for Edward Gorey, The Important Books, Stan Musial: A Biography, and A Hawaii Anthology. He is a Professor of Art History and American Studies at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
