Literary Carousel at the MFA

Photography from the MFA archives comes alive through the art of the “Ekphrastic,” a literary interpretation of a piece of visual art. Hand-picked images get the prose and poetry treatment, read live to you! Come join us for this one-of-a-kind event for literature and photography lovers alike.

Inspired by the experience of an old-fashioned slideshow, the Carousel series allows bay area photographers to present work before a live audience, promoting discussion and strengthening our local arts network. For this very special Literary Carousel at the MFA, the photographs will be selected from the photographic collection at the Museum of Fine Arts and paired with local writers.

If you are planning to attend the April 19th Literary Carousel at the MFA, you might want to check out the Cocktails and Collections beforehand. This event will be held at 5:00 p.m. in the Membership Garden. $10 includes a customized docent tour, light bites, and an art-inspired signature cocktail.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m., Presentation starts at 6:30 p.m.
