Pollock, Krasner, and Whitman: Virtual Tours and Poetry Writing 
Zoom visitors go on tours through the homes of Long Island’s world famous creative pioneers, poet Walt Whitman and painters Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner. Virtual doors open to the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in East Hampton and then to the Walt Whitman Birthplace Museum in South Huntington. Your tour guides will discuss innovative approaches to creativity, such as tapping into one’s stream-of-consciousness for inspiration and exploring abstraction, physicality, rhythm, metaphor, and free verse. Following the virtual tours, participants will be prompted to write Whitmanesque free verse poetry inspired by Pollock’s painting. Have a pen and paper ready!
The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center tour guide is Education Coordinator, Joyce Raimondo. Leading the tour through Walt Whitman Birthplace is Docent Guide Supervisor Iris Jumper. The poetry workshop leader is Christina M. Rau, poet and professor.

Bereavement and Art
How do artists express grief? Explore how world renowned artists Lee Krasner, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, and others express loss in art. Guided by Education Coordinator, Joyce Raimondo, discover how Lee Krasner expressed herself in painting following the untimely death of her husband, Jackson Pollock. Tour the barn studio where Pollock and Krasner made their abstract expressionist art. Following the presentation and tour, participants are invited to share their own art that expresses bereavement. This special workshop is inspired, in part, by Joyce Raimondo’s loss of her brother as a teenager and the life long expression art has provided.
