National Parks Art Foundation Gettysburg Residency

Brush up on your Walt Whitman. The first two weeks of March 2017 I'll be in Gettysburg National Park casting some of Walt's words in 3-D aluminum letters set in concrete. I'll then hide those lines of poetry throughout the park.

Visitors can find these markers via GPS and make graphite rubbings on rice paper, recreating his words with their visit. Or by altering sequence and omitting words, visitors can make new poems by finding Whitman's.

Residency and stipend generously funded by the National Parks Art Foundation.
