Poetry Reading  

Elisabeth Foundation For The Arts

A Traveling Show:
will read their poems about artists.


Jonathan Goodman is a freelance art writer who is currently writing for The Brooklyn Rail, artcritical, and Sculpture, among other publications. Additionally, he writes for Internet sites in Madrid and Paris. For the Paris blog, he specializes in articles on public art in settings in nature. A former student of medieval literature, he has remained in university circles, teaching 16 years as a writer in the department of fine arts at Pratt Institute.



Over the years, I’ve had poems and stories in a number of places including Carolina Quarterly, The New Criterion, New York Quarterly, The New Yorker, and Poet Lore; a novel, "Signals," published by Seaview Books/Simon & Schuster and PEI paperbacks. I have also written several original feature-length screenplays, as well as having collaborated on quite a few screenplays and film adaptations. I’ve had poems and stories, translated into French, in French publications. Currently, I am collaborating on a screenplay on Joan Mitchell and have just finished a novel that I was working on for many years. Since the poems I’m going to be reading are about artists, I should also add that I have been around and in the art world most of my life.
