Since 1992, the Poetry Society of America and New York's Metropolitan Transportation Authority have joined forces to present poems in one of the most beloved public art programs in America. Currently the program pairs poetry with art from MTA Arts & Design installations, catching readers' eyes on their daily journey. To celebrate the publication of a new anniversary anthology of 100 poems, The Best of Poetry in Motion: Celebrating 25 years on Subways and Buses, many of the poets featured will gather to read their own contributions and favorites by others--among them Aracelis Girmay, Major Jackson, Ada Limón, Jim Moore, Paul Muldoon, Marilyn Nelson, Patrick Phillips, Katha Pollitt, and Kevin Young.
