POETRY, DREAM & THE COSMOSTHE HEIDE COLLECTION
Free with Museum Pass
Drawing on poetry and the unconscious, these works spanning the 1940s to the present day, delve into the nature of creativity. Artists refer variously to modernist and counter-cultural influences, including symbolist philosophies, Surrealism, psychedelia, and non-Western spiritual traditions. Their images and words express a sense of mystery and the unknowable.
