National Poetry Month, recognized every April, celebrates poetry’s vital place in our culture.
In case you missed my post last week, as an assignment, I asked my students to create artistic representations of poems of their choosing around campus. Students were allowed to use (almost) any material for an inside or outside display. The primary purpose of the pieces is to allow anyone to approach and enjoy the poetry as well as the display and its creativity.
Here are a few student installation pieces and a poem. Enjoy!
Painted Installation in Snyder House Lounge – Marcella Harvi ’19 – Original Poem “Hurricane”
Creative Book Installation- Elizabeth Bowser ’19 – Original Poem “Those Who Saved the Memory”
Desert Display – Dakotah Kuhns ’19 – “The Singing Sands” by Lucy Eddy, “Elusive Desert” by Unknown, “Dry” by Peter Gutz
Ocean Display – Katie Fisher ’19 – “Sinking” by Anonymous, “The Sea of Our Universe”
“Broadway” by Michael Dickman
