Fourth-grader’s poem featured on Briscoe Museum website
Congratulations to fourth-grader Pia, who now has a poem that’s featured on the website of the Briscoe Western Art Museum.
Her poem won the youth category of the museum’s Ekphrastic Poetry Contest for National Poetry Month 2021.
The contest invited San Antonio residents to submit poems inspired by a selection of art works from different museums. A panel of judges including San Antonio Poet Laureate Octavio Quintanilla selected the winners.
Pia chose to write her poem on the painting “Once Upon a Time,” from artist Mark Maggiori.
Her poem won in the youth category and is online throughout the month of April on the website of the Briscoe Museum and the city of San Antonio’s Department of Arts and Culture.
