Poets in the Galleries Reservation Request Form

Fall 2017–Spring 2018 | Grades 4–12

New Program Changes

In-gallery writing exercises led by devorah major and other Bay Area poets sharpen students’ abilities to use language effectively to interpret what they see and experience. This year's program will consist of single sessions and will be hosted at the de Young during Spring 2018. The Legion of Honor is unavailable this fall due to other programming.
