The Making of Jim Dine's Poet Singing (The Flowering Sheets)

In 2008, artist Jim Dine created an installation for the Museum at the Getty Villa. The first contemporary art project at the Getty Villa, the work presents new sculpture and poetry by Dine inspired by ancient objects in the Museum's collection.

This behind-the-scenes in video walks you through each step of the making of Poet Singing (The Flowered Sheets).
