Cultural Trail: a way, with words

 

English prof’s poem picked for permanent display

Elizabeth Weber, associate professor of English, is one of four poets whose work has been chosen for display along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, which is under construction downtown. Weber’s poem “City Generation” was mounted at Poet’s Place, a site on Alabama Street that honors one of the trail’s early supporters. The poems were selected from among 120 submissions for inclusion in the trail’s public art installation, “Moving Forward” by local architect Donna Sink. The other poets’ works are displayed on colorful new bus shelters placed along the south side of Virginia Avenue between downtown and Fountain Square.

Weber, the co-director of UIndy’s Kellogg Writers Series, teaches creative writing, and her own poems and essays have been published in many magazines, anthologies, and literary journals. She holds a master’s degree in Creative Writing from the University of Montana and a doctoral degree in English and Creative Writing from SUNY Binghamton.
