"Art Inspired by Stories"

September 1st – 30th, at The Brick
Visual and literary art are at once wonderfully distinct and deeply kindred forms of expression: visual artists have been long inspired by the written word, and storytellers often find their muse in powerful works of drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and film. This exhibit pays homage to the ancient, profound, and playful relationship between word and image, and explores the myriad ways that an artist’s imagination can seize upon a piece of text – a movement in a book, a line of poetry, a passage, a quote – and render it visual.
