First Place Winner MUNI ART 2018
San Francisco Beautiful and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) present Muni Art 2018. Partnering with the Poetry Society of America (sponsors of Poetry in Motion®) and Supervisor London Breed, Muni Art 2018 transform ordinary buses into art galleries and for the first time, local poetry was included. A 100 Muni Art buses showcased the theme, “The Art of Poetry in San Francisco”. Five preselected poems were interpreted visually by this year’s winners.
My proposal call WORDS UNFOLD is a series of Visual Poetry where each piece explores a visual interpretation of a poem. I aim to capture the curiosity of the public and illustrate awareness of poetry in San Francisco. In a visual poem, visual language is the essence; and the verbal language functions as a complement to the image, where the verbal and iconic meaning converges in a mutual exploration.
