If you haven’t explored the Art on the Trails exhibit at Beals Preserve, you’re running out of time. Fortunately, there is a special guided walk to close this summer’s exhibition. As is their tradition, the organizers organize a Poetry March.

A call for poems inspired by the trail’s exhibits was launched this spring. During the closing ceremony on September 26 of the thematic exhibition “Repair”, selected poets will read their poems in the artistic installations that inspired them.

Here is the announcement:

This year’s exhibition was made possible through partnership with the Southborough Community Fund and the Southborough Open Land Foundation, as well as support from the Massachusetts Cultural Councils of Southborough and Northborough.

The exhibition was presented by Sarah Montross, Senior Curator, of Cordova Sculpture Park and Museum. The poetry submissions were judged by Tianli Kilpatrick, editor of the Worcester Review.
