Upcoming Programs

ArTalk with Get Lit-Words Ignite!

Saturday January 28



The Fowler Museum invites teachers to work with GET LIT teaching artists and discover new ways of incorporating poetry into classroom, inspired by art on view at the Fowler. This on-site workshop will include a tour of Intersections: World Arts, Local Livesa writing workshop with GET LIT Educators, and a special performance from the GET LIT Players.

GET LIT is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the power of poetic expression to at-risk teens through a standards-based curriculum fusing classic literature and poetry with contemporary spoken word performance techniques.

The Fowler exhibition, Intersections: World Arts, Local Lives, explores the roles that art plays in creating meaning and defining purpose for people across the globe. The objects on display have all intervened in the lives of those who made them or used them, whether to educate, solve problems, assert leadership, or act as memory aids. The objects featured are primarily from Africa, Asia, the Pacific, and the Americas, and range in dates from the third millennium B.C.E to present.

Educators will have the opportunity to work closely with Fowler educators, curators and guest workshop leaders in a three-day workshop intensive.
