    Join us for a reading of local and regional poets in celebration of HYBRID: Transported by Word and Image. HYBRID is an installation of poetry and photography in taxi cabs, a project that began in Madison, WI, where the work of 43 poets was paired with photographs taken by Thomas Ferrella. Poet and curator, Sara Parrell, worked with Ferrella to combine photographs and poems in order to create unique works of art, which were then installed in each of the Prius cabs owned by the Green Cab Company in Madison. Since September 1st, these works have been on view in Milwaukee in the Prius cabs owned by the American United Taxi Cab Company.

    2021 Winona Poetry Walk: Opening Reading

    5:00 pmPeter’s Biergarten at 54 East Second Street

    2021 Winona Poetry Walk - Print Version (1)

    To celebrate the opening of the 2021 edition of the Winona Poetry Walk, the Winona Fine Arts Commission is very pleased to announce a
    reading of the selections for the second year of the public art initiative. This project consists of original poetry stamped into sidewalks and
    installation of the poems downtown. Each of the ten selected poets will read their excerpts or short poems, and the public will be invited to take
    the Poetry Walk with a map provided or digitally available at the City of Winona website. The free reading will be at the new wonderful
    Peter’s Biergarten at 54 East Second Street beginning at 5pm with the reading at 5:30.
    The FAC requested submissions of original short poems (or parts of poems) and received a wonderful variety of responses. Nine poems were
    selected by the following poets: Jerome Christenson, Michael William Doyle, Dan Eastman, Parker Forsell, Nancy Kay Peterson, Marcia
    Ratliff, Steve Schild, Sabrina Schlichting, and Lucas Stangl. The Fine Arts Commission continued their inclusion of one professional poet of
    renown or public title with a work by former Wisconsin Poet Laureate Kimberly Blaeser. The mission of the WINONA Poetry Walk is to
    celebrate local writers, make the creativity of our residents more visible, and aesthetically and intellectually enrich our city.
    In addition to their scheduled installation locations, Winona residents have the opportunity to have a contractor borrow a poetry stamp and
    place a poem in the sidewalk outside their residence.
    The selections were judged by a panel of local citizens with expertise in the arts and poetry chosen by the Fine Arts Commission. The Fine Arts
    Commission would like to thank the panel of judges for their wonderful work: Dante DeGrazia, John Kerr, Caitlin McCoy, LaShara Morgan,
    Kathy Peterson, Paul Stern, and Tricia Wehrenberg.
