The Doris McCarthy Gallery invites UTSC’s annual Writer-in-Residence to peruse the DMG Permanent Art Collection and identify a work of art to inspire a piece of writing. This literary contribution adds lasting, meaningful layers of interpretation to the work in the collection. Many thanks are owed to the Creative Writing program for the enthusiasm and support they have offered toward this collaborative project.
