One of the recurring topics on the Boynton Blog is poetry walks. An article in this week’s Berkeleyside offers an instructive look back at the inspiration and installation of the Addison Street Poetry Walk (123 cast iron plates with porcelain enamel text) in Berkeley, California.

The revitalization of downtown Berkeley was a collaborative effort involving multiple individuals and agencies, including Robert Hass, who selected the poems, and landscape design by John Northmore Roberts & Associates. The project was initiated in the 1990s and completed in 2003. In 2004, it was named a National Poetry Landmark by The Academy of American Poets.
