USC Poetry + The Broad: Tour of the Imagination

Organized by award-winning poet and University of Southern California Professor of English, Carol Muske-Dukes, this special one-night public reading is The Broad's contribution to National Poetry Month. As part of a USC graduate course entitled A Tour of the Imagination, each of Muske-Dukes' current PhD students will read a poem before the art work which served as inspiration. The reading will be fulfillment of an ongoing collaborative process between image and word: these poets have earlier chosen an individual work of art from the Broad collection, then spent hours "in conversation" with their selection, composing the poem.
