The Living Poetry Project gives poems from a book on tools to construction workers; or surprises shoppers with hidden poems in the pockets of jeans on a store’s sale rack, burns a Rumi poem into small pieces of wood left scattered in a restaurant; or writes a poem on a t-shirt and gives it away.

This year we hope to grow and create large installation art pieces, happenings, and readings to help bridge visual art with poetry.

You get the idea: poetry everywhere and anywhere, waiting to enliven and deepen your day. Check out The Living Poetry Project on The Bees Knees.

Risks and challenges

The risk is as it always is with art--each attempt risks failure. Some of the projects will be received better than others, however The Living Poetry Project is determined to learn from failure and continue to grow from those lessons.
