POP-UP POETRY (PUP)

POP-UP-POETRY! Expect the Unexpected

The Poet is IN!  Heights Arts presented Pop-Up Poetry June-August 2012.  Pop-Up Poetry was a project designed by 2011-12 Cleveland Heights Poet Laureate Cavana Faithwalker to bring some of the region’s most interesting poets to the streets.  The centerpiece of Pop-Up Poetry was a portable booth created by architect Theodore Ferringer and furniture designer Patrick Doran.  A radical update of Lucy’s “Psychiatric Help 5 cents,” the booth sets up, unfolds like an umbrella, and the poet is in business!
