history walk…

November 7, 2012

Sidewalk in King Park on Lake Michigan. © Anne WallaceHere’s a not-quite-poetry walk, but a sidewalk project that shares the accidental poetry of storytelling and history. Texas artist Anne Wallace has created three sidewalk oral history projects: two in San Antonio, Texas, one in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. In each project, she has interviewed local residents, then stamped their stories — letter by letter — into the wet cement. See her description of the projects and a series of photos here, and a close-up photo of Wallace stamping here.
