The Manton Study Center for Works on Paper invites writers of all experience and skill levels to be inspired by thematic selections from the Clark’s collection of works on paper. April’s theme, “Art and Writing,” features prints, drawings, and photographs exploring the relationship between images and text. The selection includes works with inscriptions, captions, and hand-written dedications by their artists, as well as illustrations of famous literary scenes. Whether it’s poetry or prose, fiction or non-, and a story-in-progress or something completely new, allow the works to inspire your writing.

Basic materials are provided. Writers bringing their own supplies should note that only graphite pencils are allowed in the Study Center.

Free. Advance registration required; capacity is limited.
