Poetry Workshop: Pastoral Poetry + The Highwaymen 

April 21 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm UTC+0

Wednesday, April 21; 12:30 p.m.–1:30 p.m. 

In this workshop, participants will look at examples of pastoral poems and spend time composing an individual work based on The Highwaymen’s artwork. Pastoral poetry is known for exploring the relationship between humans and nature. International slam poetry champion Anthony McPherson will lead the workshop. McPherson’s work incorporates various art forms and a myriad of character impressions to address race, art and his own biracial identity. He has appeared on Button PoetryHuffPost and Upworthy. His first viral poem, “All Lives Matter: 1800s Edition,” has received more than 10 million views online. Admission is free; however, registration is required at https://nmaahc.si.edu/events/upcoming.
