PANEL: Word + Image: Filipino American Art as Inspiration

Moderators: Eileen Tabios and Janna Añonuevo Langholz
Ekphrasis, typically defined as a literary response to a visual work of art, can be valuable to the work of a writer both as a creative exercise and as the impetus for a complete poem or prose piece. During this session, artists from The Filipino American Artist Directory will introduce slides of their art and writers will share their crafted responses.

Panelists include the artists Carlo Ricafort, Kimberley Acebo Arteche, Pam Ybanez, Daniel Ballesteros, and Janna Añonuevo Langholz. Represented writers include Jonel Abellanosa, Aileen Cassinetto, Melinda Luisa de Jesus, Veronica Montes, and Eileen Tabios.  Jean Vengua’s art also will be featured.



As an ekphrasis project, REPRODUCTIONS OF THE EMPTY FLAGPOLE also was distributed to attendees of the ekphrasis panel. Here are more photos of the artists and attendees:
