While there may not be a SculptureNow exhibition for 2020, WordXWord is bringing its own brand of sculpture to the grounds, asking poets to imagine a sculpture, create a poem in response to that sculpture, and then perform their piece as part of Walking with WordXWord: The Unsculptured Walk.

Advance registration is required for this free event. Small groups will be guided through the grounds, stopping for individual performances. Plan to wear comfortable shoes, a face covering, maintain social distancing, and stay home if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. Visit our Health and Safety Guidelines page for more information.

 

This program is offered in partnership with WordxWord.

WordxWord uses spoken word, poetry, and storytelling in shared space and time to celebrate diversity and creativity, empower the individual, foster understanding and empathy, and make real human connections
