Poetry Foundation


Poetry is a place in Chicago. The Poetry Foundation, an independent literary organization and publisher of Poetry magazine, invites visitors to experience poetry as art by presenting engaging, multifaceted exhibitions that bring together visual arts and the written word. The Poetry Foundation Gallery exhibits work that is poetry, including posters, broadsides, text- or book-based works, correspondence, and personal effects, as well as works of visual poetry or art by emerging and established poets. Inhabit poetry through archival exhibitions that locate poets in the visual and tactile material of their time. The exhibition rotates three times a year. Free and open to all.
