the collection

Poets for Science is an exhibition featuring a Special Collection of Poems Curated by Jane Hirshfield and interactive, creative writing stations for visitors.

About the Project

On Earth Day, April 22, 2017, demonstrators around the world participated in a March for Science in a call to support and safeguard the scientific community, fact-based decision making, basic research, and freedom of speech for scientists.

Posters-10

“Hirshfield, who curated the poems, describes the posters as ‘Human-sized poems,’ bringing forward the human side of science—how we think and feel with its knowledge, how its knowledge touches our lives in ways from galactic to microscopic.”
