At the end of an action-packed working week here’s just a few of the funny, inspiring and engaging (sorry, see below) comments you sent to us on our blog, Twitter and Facebook page.
Thanks everyone who left us a comment and came to visit us, online and in the gallery, this week!
On Thursday we celebrated World Poetry Day. Emma in Tate Publishing wrote a blog post on why William Blake is her hero and we asked you what his Songs of Innocence and Experience means to you:
It reminds me of being 13, and trying to copy the image in colouring pencils in an uninspiring English lesson… Blake’s drawings alongside his writing opened up poetry for me :)
Love Blake - made a pilgrimage to the Tate to see ‘Teach These Souls To Fly’
I still remember my mother reciting this to me when I was four or five years old. It took me about fifty years to re-discover it. And I recognised it at once.
We also asked you to send us your art inspired haikus:
Could be just a sketch,
but the traces of movement
Blossom over time
This is my haiku
Set in Helvetia Neue

You visited Lichtenstein: A Retrospective at Tate Modern:
Off to the @Tate Modern to see the #RoyLichtenstein exhibition. Been waiting for a month to go #excited is an understatement
@Tate #lichtenstein. My second visit, won’t be my last. Makes me smile, love the Chinese pictures
The exhibition was wonderful, thank you. What made it ever better was that I was proposed to by the ‘The Engagement’ piece! There was quite a crowd! I’m so delighted, it was the best day ever and the Tate Modern, the exhibition and that painting will always be very special to us both. Thank you for such wonderful memories.
You came to Tate Britain to see Schwitters in Britain:
In other news, turns out #Schwitters @Tate is pretty special- particularly collages in 1st 2 rooms. Go see!
At @Tate Brit for #Schwitters. Lovely, melancholy, informative. Had no knowledge of amazing #PhantomRide & #LookingattheView - both excellent
…And you saw reheasrals and live performance by Charles Atlas with dancer and choreographer duo Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud in the Tanks at Tate Modern.
watching Charles Atlas & collaborators’ incredibly photogenic open rehearsal…Choreography of bodies, cameras, gaze. So wish I was working on this. @Tate_Live
Saw Charles Atlas’s latest piece tonight at the Tate, stunning work visually and technically on all parts
Last night’s Charles Atlas performance at TATE was an inspiration. Go see!
Keep your creative comments and stories coming and we look forward to hearing from you next week!
