The Mount / Edith Wharton's Home, 2 Plunkett St, Lenox

Follow along as poets offer an exploration of The Mount’s grounds and selected works in the Sculpture At The Mount exhibition. Using a sculpture and the environment as prompts, poets offer new ways of “seeing” what is before us. Walking shoes are advised.
