5. Poetry in Motion
A classic part of the subway, Poetry in Motion – presented by the Poetry of Society of America in partnership with MTA Arts & Design – will also have a place in the corridor. Selected works will appear on digital screens throughout the concourse level which runs from 43rd Street to 48th Street.
The poems are accompanied by beautiful works of visual art. Currently at the station visitors will see Mary Ruefle’s “Voyager” accompanied by Bensonhurst Gardens (2012) by Francesco Simeti; Ashbery-Bravo’s “Train Rising Out of the Sea” with Duration (2017) by Monika Bravo; Toi Derricotte’s “A nap” with Forte (Quarropas) (2020) by Barbara
Takenaga; Heather McHugh’s “A Night in a World” with Edges of a South Brooklyn Sky (2018) by Sally Gil; Aracelis Girmay’s “Noche de Lluvia, San Salvador” with Stream (2001) by Elizabeth Murray.
