TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
A new public arts project aims to inspire thought along the Maumee riverfront.
As the Maritime Museum project takes shape in the Marina District, the Toledo poetry sidewalks have been poured into the landscape to add to the experience for visitors.
The arts commission received 70 poems for the project. Five were selected to have the words stamped into sections of sidewalks at the new park located next to the Schoonmaker museum ship. Costing around $6,000, the project is funded by the city of Toledo's One Percent for Art program and aims to give visitors a unique way to interact with the landscape.
Sidewalk poets are happy their work is now incorporated into the great lakes museum.
"I think it's fantastic. I really do. I think we need more stuff like this around here. It's beautiful. It's a diamond in the rough," said Zac Gilley.
"Watching this whole park come together, it's so beautiful. It's so nice to stop and I read once in a while when I stop. Somebody is actually here reading it. I sit back. I love to see smiles on their faces when they read these," said Betsy Ujvagi.
Last weekend, the Great Lakes Historical Society hosted events to attract new volunteers. Officials say around 150 people stopped by and 20 people expressed interest in volunteering at the museum.
