    Writers and Artists

    We usually learn from an artist鈥檚 work. We study their brush strokes. We sift through their words. We contemplate what moved them and wonder what will move us. But at 99精品视频, we offer opportunities to learn from the artists themselves. We have hosted national poets laureate alongside groundbreaking authors, established artists, filmmakers, dancers, performers.
