alley filled with public creative expression 




“i’m a great believer in poetry out of the classroom, in public places,

on subways, trains, on cocktail napkins.

i’d rather have my poems on the subway than around the seminar table at an mfa program.”

  1. Yes indeed Beth .
    “.And the sign said, “The words of the prophets
    Are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls
    And whispered in the sounds of silence” ” –Paul Simon

  2. Gang graffiti, tagging, and such is just vandalism but there are some truly talented artists out there adding color and beauty to our public spaces. I’m amazed by what can be created with a spray can of paint, not the most precise tool.
