Earlier this year we solicited short poems for a special public poetry project across Worcester which we called “A Walk in the Woo”. Over the past two weeks, a few volunteers painted stencils of the thirteen selected poems near bus stops (see the locations). What makes this public art project extra special is that the installed poems will only be visible when they get wet.
You don’t need to wait for the next rainy day to read the great work though. Visit the A Walk in the Woo page on our website.
Special thanks to our judges – Juan Matos, Poet Laureate, City of Worcester; Walter Molina, Clemente Alumnus; Elizabeth Bacon, Coordinator of Clemente Course in the Humanities; and Katherine Gregiore, WCPA Board Member.
