Poetry and painting have long been viewed as sister arts. "The poet is like a painter," said Plato. Horace coined the phrase ut pictura poesis ("as a painting, so a poem"). Three contemporary artists, Mark Doty and W. D. Snodgrass (poets) and Donald Roller Wilson (painter) address the relationship of poetry and painting through their own experience. Linda McGreevy is the moderator.
