This fall, Chinati continued its Seeing Poetry program, which is a collaborative effort between the museum and Marfa ISD. Ninth graders, along with teachers, Chinati staff, and a professional poet, used Carl Andre's permanent Chinati installation “Words” as an entry point for writing their own poetry and silkscreening those works onto paper and t-shirts.
Please join us, Wednesday, November 4, 2015 for Seeing Poetry, an exhibition of original poetry written and screen printed by the Marfa High School freshman class.
