Allen Ginsberg Photos at NGA, DC ⁞⁞⁞ Blog ⁞⁞⁞ Things I Like
Before I moved out of DC, I made sure to check out “Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg” at the National Gallery of Art. The photos are primarily portraits of Ginsberg’s friends, who were also authors, poets, artists, and musicians, and each photo has some lines of loopy cursive written by Ginsberg. If you want to inspiration to fill your life with more spontaneous creativity and to feel both uncool and full of unlimited potential for cool at the same time, make sure to take a look this summer—the show’s up until September 6.
Food for thought: Kerouac began writing On the Road while living with his parents.
