Hands-On Tour

Marianne Moore, Modernist Poet

Friday, April 5, 2013 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Marianne Moore, like Pablo Picasso, broke free of tradition and reassembled the pieces in a new and sometimes confounding way. In this tour, we will study her letters, clippings and the objects she surrounded herself with to find out more about the sources for her revolutionary and groundbreaking work.
