Poetry Foundation


Poetry is a place in Chicago.

The Poetry Foundation, an independent literary organization and publisher of Poetry magazine, presents 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. Exhibitions rotate seasonally three times a year. Check poetryfoundation.org for updates.

Free and open to all.
