Farnsworth presents Ecopoetry program for Earth Day

"Global Warming VI" by John Paul Caponigro.

Rockland — On Saturday, April 24, the Farnsworth Art Museum presents a special program for Earth Day. The poetry panel, entitled “Ecopoetry: Voices from the Earth in Crisis," features poets Carol Bachofner, John Paul Caponigro, Kathleen Ellis, Ellen Goldsmith and Kristen Lindquist. The discussion takes place on Zoom from 1 to 3 p.m.

Through the years, poetry has praised nature, the way painters have tried to capture the beauty of the landscape. With concerns about our environmental crisis, many poets are writing poems that warn and admonish. Poetry invades the mind and heart. The hope is that along with information from scientists the words of poets will contribute to conquering the ecological crises. This session will present poems that prepare the soil for change.

This program is free to the public. For more information or to register, visit
