Highland Park has almost 30 pieces of outdoor public art displayed in parks, on trails and public spaces throughout the City. To help celebrate this rich collection of public art, we’re asking poets of all ages to select a piece of art and write a poem about it.
Contest deadline is August 1st. Winning poems will be printed on signs for temporary display near the art work beginning in September. Poems will also be posted on the Muses’ Gallery of our website. Selected poems will also be featured in a display on the Ruth Fell Wander Community Art Wall at the First Bank of Highland Park in January 2018. Attached are the submission guidelines, entry form and a map listing all of the public art works.
