e. jean lanyon: The Magic Language

April 9 @ 10:00 am - August 7 @ 4:00 pm

Free with Museum Admission

The Delaware Art Museum celebrates the career of e. jean lanyon with this Distinguished Artist exhibition. Educated at Goddard College and Chouinard Art Institute, lanyon is well known for her work as a visual artist and poet. She has woven these two creative impulses together throughout her life. In 1979, lanyon was appointed Poet Laureate of the State of Delaware, and in this role, she worked to encourage the broad appreciation of poetry across the state. The Biggs Museum of American Art presented the retrospective, As the Poet Paints, in 2012, surveying her published works and plein air watercolors. This exhibition, e. jean lanyon: The Magic Language, will feature the artist’s illustrations, which utilize that essential element of art, the line, to deftly convey a story.
