Poetry on the Rapid to feature GVSU faculty poetry

April 2, 2015; GVNow (Grand Valley State University’s internal newsletter)

Passengers on The Rapid will have more than just West Michigan scenery to look at throughout April when poetry crafted by Grand Valley State University faculty will be on display during the Poetry on the Rapid program.

Six poems will be featured on placards throughout The Rapid bus system, each designed by Vinicius Lima, assistant professor of graphic design at Grand Valley. The placards will feature works by multiple Grand Valley Writing Department faculty, including Patricia Clark, Chris Haven, Amorak Huey and Todd Kaneko. Poetry from Calvin College and Grand Rapids Community College faculty will also be on display.
