Overview

Poetry. As a way of preserving and celebrating Berkeley's wellspring of literary and artistic history, the City of Berkeley called on former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Hass and award-winning artist David Goines to design a series of poetry panels that have been installed in the sidewalks of Berkeley's thriving downtown arts and theater district. Filled with history, poetry, and anecdote, it is a splendid introduction to the history of poetry in the city, with full commentary on each poem by Hass himself. Taken as a whole, this work makes clear the importance, passion, playfulness, and episodic looniness of one of America's most vibrant cities.
