Ekphrastic Poetry Project

Ekphrastic, or ekphrasis, is a Greek word described by Webster’s dictionary as “a literary description of, or commentary on, a visual work of art. We invite you to write, and/or perform, an original poem inspired by an object in Maryhill’s collection.

Exquisitely Connected Project

During the spring of 2020, Maryhill launched Exquisitely Connected, a national visual art community-building experience inspired by the Surrealist parlor game, Exquisite Corpse.  People from all over the country were invited to create 8” x 8” artworks expressing their feelings, hopes and metaphors for their shared experiences during Covid-19.  The project brought together creatives of all ages and abilities – virtually and literally – as each finished artwork became a part of a larger whole.
