An Earth Song, A Body Song: Figures in landscape from the OCMA permanent collection

Fellows Event

The title of “An Earth Song, A Body Song: Figures with Landscape from the OCMA Permanent Collection” references Langston Hughes’s poem “Earth Song,” which celebrates the sensuous earth and the coming of spring. Like the poem’s subject, the bodies referenced in these artworks are sensuous, alive, and speaking from the margins of an earth in crisis and worthy of protection. Curated by Daniel Duford
