Public Art in Transit and 826 MSP (formerly Mid-Continent Oceanographic Institute) are teaming up to bring poetry to bus stops.
Beginning in August 2019, poetry by Twin Cities youth will be found on schedule signs at bus stops in Brooklyn Park, Minneapolis and St. Paul. Twenty-three poems by 23 youth poets will be posted in 23 locations. Poems about home, family, nature, ice cream and more. Poems will rotate throughout the year.
