    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.
