Jane Hirshfield (2010)
For the O.B. Hardison Poetry Series 2010, Jane Hirshfield read from her work in The Phillips Collection on April 8, 2010.
Jane Hirshfield has written six collections of poetry, including After, chosen as one of the best books of 2006 by The Washington Post and London's Financial Times, as well as Given Sugar, Given Salt and The October Palace.
Hirshfield's reading responds to The Phillips Collection's exhibition Georgia O'Keeffe: Abstraction, which features more than 70 paintings, watercolors, and drawings by O'Keeffe, as well as a selection of close-up photographic portraits of O'Keeffe by Alfred Stieglitz. The ticket price for this event includes entrance to view the exhibition. Learn more about the exhibit at www.phillipscollection.org.
