Art at Lunch with Poet James Crews

How to Love the World: Poems of Gratitude & Hope

April is National Poetry Month, so we have invited Shaftsbury-based poet, James Crews, to be our guest for this month’s Art at Lunch. James will discuss how the art of poetry is well-suited to the times we’re living in, its capability to hold difficulty and beauty at the same time, and its ability to lift us into hope for a brighter future as well as gratefulness for what we find in our everyday lives.

About the Presenter:

James Crews is the author of four collections of poetry, The Book of What Stays, Telling My Father, Bluebird, and Every Waking Moment. He is also the editor of two anthologies: Healing the Divide: Poems of Kindness and Connection and How to Love the World: Poems of Gratitude and Hope. Crews teaches in the low-residency MFA program at Eastern Oregon University and lives with his husband on an organic farm in Vermont.

Art at Lunch:

Save the date! On the first Tuesday of every month, we will introduce you to an artist, explore a painting, or engage in conversations about the amazing and diverse art present in Vermont and in the greater Bennington area.

Art at Lunch is offered at no charge to Bennington Museum members (follow the “Get Tickets Here” link to register) and on a pay-what-you-wish basis to Not-Yet-Members.
