Emily Dickinson’s mythic reclusiveness and haunting, elliptical verse have captured the imaginations of artists since the poems first appeared in print. This exhibition will showcase the work of contemporary artists, including Jen Bervin, Lesley Dill, and Spencer Finch who are inspired by her poetry and life.

A replica of Dickinson’s only surviving dress will be on loan from the Emily Dickinson Museum in Amherst, MA.
