Farnsworth Art Museum will host a talk by poet Kristen Lindquist (pictured), “Digging for Gold: Responding to Art Through Poetry,” on Friday, April 19, at 2 p.m. in the museum auditorium. Seeking inspiration one winter, local poet Lindquist turned to some of her favorite art: luminous paintings from the 17th-century Dutch and Flemish Golden Age that produced such masters as Rembrandt and Vermeer. Lindquist will discuss the creative activity of written reflection on a work of visual art, known as ekphrastic writing, and share her poem series “Golden” alongside images of the paintings themselves. The fee is $10. For more information or to register, visit www.farnsworthmuseum.org.
