Poetry in the city
The city of Gloucester has come alive with the power of words. Thirty local residents have had their poetry shared along a sculpture trail around the city. Words have been stencilled in parks and on pavements, while big wooden letters stand proud in churches and dockyards. The installation, titled Of Earth And Sky, has been organised by artist Luke Jerram. “This is about connecting the people of Gloucestershire,” he said, adding it was “hugely exciting” to see “powerful poetry take shape” in the city.
