In conjunction with the exhibition Patti Smith: Camera Solo, visitors explored the poetry, music, art and life of cultural icon Patti Smith. The exhibition included related images by and about Smith’s friend and collaborator, the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe as a reflection of their singular relationship. The exhibition asked visitors to write a poem about someone who had inspired them.
