Poetry meets River Bike Path in Portugal
February 22, 2010 § 7 Comments
Check out Lisbon’s poetry installation along their bike path paralleling the Tagus River. The poem is The Keeper of Sheep by Fernando Pessoa. (Somewhat gratuituous plug: Pessoa is a poet whom I learned about via his cameo in the excellent story A Trip to Lisbon in one of my favorite comic book series: the wonderful Monsieur Jean stories by Dupuy and Berberian.)
How about something like this locally, featuring the Los Angeles River poetry of Lewis MacAdams or Gary Snyder? There was a temporary installation a bit like this during one of the Arroyo Arts Collective‘s river installation shows – which featured a similar art installation with a quote from the Olmsted-Bartholomew plan – painted along the river path in Elysian Valley.
