- Amy Bagwell
Poetry is meant to be seen as much as it is meant to be heard, & access to it is too limited. Installing my poems in likeminded objects & presenting them to the public are ways to get in on & expand the broadcast.
My work has been shown in galleries in New York, Atlanta, Athens, Asheville, Charlotte, & Greensboro. I co-direct Wall Poems, Inc., a mural project bringing poems to walls & public spaces, and Goodyear Arts, an artists' residency & events project.
"I’m not saying that I don’t have practically the most lofty ideas of anyone writing today, but what difference does that make? They’re just ideas." - Frank O'Hara, Personism: A Manifesto
