Monument to the Philadelphia Poet

  • Shakespeare Memorial Park at the Free Library of Philadelphia 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA, 19103 United States (map)

A monumental project deserves a monumental performance, and Philadelphia’s poetry scene does not disappoint. Local writers Yolanda Wisher, Lillian Dunn, and Nicole Steinberg, and more have selected a host of Philadelphia-based poets for this one-night-only monument in verse, part of Monument Lab, a public art and history project produced by Mural Arts Philadelphia. The project, taking place over nine weeks between September 16 and November 19, invites people to join a citywide conversation about history, memory, and our collective future.
