Words on walls

Del Paso Words & Walls Project

For this cool local project, the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission teams with the Del Paso Boulevard Partnership in a search for poets to submit work. The chosen pieces will each be assigned a wall on Del Paso Boulevard. From there, a graphic artist will be tasked with turning the words into an art installation, using metal, paint, stickers, etc.—any rendering is possible; the only constraint is budget. Poems must be about the boulevard, and the deadline for submissions is 3 p.m. on Tuesday, February 26. www.sacmetroarts.org/poetwall.html for application instructions.
