Poetry in Motion®

2014 Selected Poems

Nashville is a proud participant in the national Poetry in Motion® program.

Created in 1992 by the Poetry Society of America, Poetry in Motion® was designed to showcase classic and contemporary poetry in public transit vehicles. The program has appeared in more than 30 cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C., and made its debut on Nashville MTA vehicles in 2012.

Metro Arts collaborates the Nashville Metro Transit Authority (MTA) each year to bring poems to the public via city buses during National Poetry Month (April). Selected poems showcase the work of youth and adult emerging poets and graphic designers and have included partnerships with NCAA Women's Final Four, Nashville Scene, Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum,Southern Word, and Nossi College of Art.
