All are welcome to a poetry discussion and creative writing workshop in conversation with Pop América, 1965–1975. Together, we will read and discuss Pop poems from a wide range of North, Central, and South American poets. After engaging with the exhibition, we will compose original poems in dialogue with the works on view, including themes related to the concept of “America,” nationality, borders, and migration. Maggie Queeney of The Poetry Foundation will lead the session. Space is limited and registration is required.

Presented by The Block Museum in partnership with The Poetry Foundation.
