Exhibition - Entwined: Visual and Textual Narratives

Saturday, Jun 15, 2024 from 12:00pm to 6:00pm
Dorothy and Charles Mosesian Center for the Arts
321 Arsenal Street

The Mosesian Center for the Arts is excited to present an exhibition that finds inspiration in literature, the written word, folk tales, and stories of all kinds from fairy tales to narratives that are autobiographical or speak of the human condition. Visual arts have been inspired by the written word since antiquity. There are strong connections between literature and visual arts. Words paint pictures and artists interpret and / or are influenced by stories. The influence goes both ways, as stories are influenced by images as well. Poetry, novels, and song lyrics are often enhanced by images. Children books are made more vivid when accompanied by pictures. Album covers and music videos come to life when combined with visuals.

This exhibition ties into the theme of Our Stories, 2024 Annual Benefit and Mosesian Awards on May 21. Honorees of the evening include critically acclaimed novelist and screenwriter, Tom Perrotta, and the team behind the Earfull Series: Jen Trynin, Tim Huggins, Michael Creamer, and Jon Lupfer.

Location: MBAR Gallery, Thomas A. Pannesi Lobby (1st Floor), Watertown Saving Bank Gallery (2nd Floor)
