Call for Poetry – Keystone Arts & Culture Center (click link for complete information)
Poetry PathsÂ seeks original poems by living poets from Lancaster to be integrated into a piece of public art permanently displayed at Keystone Arts & Culture Center.
AWARDS — Two poets will be chosen; each will receive $250.
DEADLINE — May 31, 2011, midnight
SITE & THEME — Keystone Culture & Arts Center is located at the intersection of Pearl Street and Prangley Avenue, in the heart of the southwest quadrant of Lancaster City. We are looking for poems that speak, obliquely or directly, to themes of welcome, possibility and opportunity.Â In this way, we hope the poems will allude to the way Keystoneâ€™s neighborhood and its residents have changed and adapted over time.
The public art, to be designed and fabricated by Keystone, will bring together the collaborative efforts of several artists, reflect community input, and provide reference to Lancaster’s rich heritage in the arts.
ELIGIBILITY — Open to living poets of any age (including youth poets) who live or have lived in Lancaster, PA.
