6pm, December 30th: Carol Dine, author of the collection of poems Van Gogh in Poems (Bitter Oleander Press, 2009) will read poems from her book. Dine will offer brief explanations prior to reading some of the poems which will enhance our understanding and appreciation of Van Gogh’s life and creative struggles. These poems are in the voice of Van Gogh and based on Dine’s imaginative recreations after three trips to examine Van Gogh’s drawings in the special collections of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
The Denver Museum Shop has Dine’s poetry collection available through the efforts of Greg McKay, the Manager of the Museum Shop. If you plan a visit to the Becoming Van Gogh exhibit, you might want to check out Dine’s book.
