Each year Art Poems creates a collaboration of 12 Artists and 12 Poets and inspires them to create new work based on the exchange of one artwork and one poem by each participant. Art Poems culminates in a stage performance incorporating art, poetry, music and dance. Click here for more on Art Poems.
In 2012 Mary Ann Devos was chosen as one of the 12 participating artists. Mary Ann's pendant Genesis inspired poet Carol Drummond to write the poem Reflection. Poet Pat Washington's poem My Country inspired Mary Ann to create her mixed media piece also titled My Country.
