Poetry Path Opening Festival
Apr 23, 2020 - Apr 25, 2020
We celebrate the Poetry Path opening with programs that follow the theme of pathfinding, including several that invite you to step into the Path and participate in the creation of new engagements with public space. Events include guided walks, readings, workshops and more! This installation includes fragments from poems reaching across time, space, and cultures, featuring 50 poets whose work considers the relationships between people, nature, and the urban landscape.
All Poetry Path events are free and open to the public. The Poets House Poetry Path is made possible through a partnership with Battery Park City Authority, with additional support from our Outreach Partner, Goldman Sachs.
