Blanton Museum of Art
If These Walls Could Speak combines art and literature to provide new points of access to the Blanton by investigating the museumâs permanent collection through poetry. In collaboration with the Creative Writing Program in the College of Liberal Arts, the Blanton invited poets from throughout Texas to submit original ekphrastic poems related to a work in the museumâs permanent collection. Selected contributors were then invited to read their submissions in the museumâs permanent collection galleries to a public audience. These poems, images of the corresponding works, audio and video recordings of the poetsâ readings, and commentary are included in the interactive presentation.
