Build a City of Poems: An Interactive Exhibition of Poetry and Art

This weekend make a pilgrimage to “Build a City of Poems: An Interactive Exhibition of Poetry and Art" created by downtown elementary school students and murals from the Community Word Project. Visitors of all ages are invited to come out to Governors Island to contribute their own drawings and poetry, filling in the outline of a gigantic cityscape mural created by artist Felipe Galindo. Poets House Executive Director Lee Briccetti says, "Governors Island has become New York City’s Burning Man for families: A place to not only escape the city’s frenetic pace, but to channel energy into creativity and play."
