Beautiful installation in tribute to Salvadoran poet Roque Dalton at Oakland's African American Museum & Library by local artist Victor Cartagena. Hundreds of poems rained down from the ceiling and covered the walls, while a quote over the doorway reminds us: “Yes, we are not made of ‘words alone,’ but Dalton’s words were banned and he lost his life because of them.”

1,000 white envelopes containing poems were strung throughout a garden in Madrid, Spain in a recent installation by Luzinterruptus called ’1,000 Poems by Mail’. Created as part of poetry festival Poetas Por Km2, each envelope contained a poem written by one of the 17 poets participating. The envelopes were softly illuminated as a centrepiece for the three day festival and on the last night, were offered to the public as a memento or easy-to-address note to a loved one. I just love this type of street art…

One thousand poems lit up in an installation in a park in Madrid as part of a poetry festival. At the end of the installation, the poems were offered to the public to keep or to send, complete with their lights. Captivating!
