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.
