In a bold move, Boston Sculptors Gallery has invited poets to partner with artists to create collaborative works combining both of their voices. The result is an unexpected cross-pollination that engages the common ground of these two distinct forms of artistic expression.

Each sculptor and each poet has created a new work in response to his or her partner’s art or writing. The exhibit is about the essence of inspiration, which is mysterious, profound, and intimate. It is a unique collaboration between two art forms: poetry, which is ephemeral and sculpture, which is concrete. Embracing materials as varied as silk, steel, bronze, rawhide, granite, wood, wax, glass, light and sound, the sculptors interpret in form what the poets have alluded to in words. The wide range of poetry encompasses hip-hop, free verse, rhymed couplets and ekphrastic poetry, which is a tradition of vivid verbal descriptions of works of art.
