The Wick Poetry Center’s “Traveling Stanzas: Poets for Science” exhibit features twenty art banners designed with science-themed poems curated by Poets for Science founder Jane Hirshfield, as well as interactive writing tools to inspire meaningful discourse at the intersection of science and creativity. Visitors will get a chance to engage with Emerge™ and Thread™, the Wick Center’s apps that prompt users to create erasure poetry in conversation with scientists. This ongoing interdisciplinary project began as a featured exhibit at the 2017 March for Science on the National Mall.
