Wendy Burk, Poetry Center Librarian, discusses the Poetry Foundation Gallery exhibit of vintage Arizona Poetry Center posters with artist and printmaker April Sheridan from Columbia College’s Center for Book and Paper Arts.

In the sixties and seventies, visual art students at the University of Arizona collaborated with the University of Arizona Poetry Center to create silkscreened publicity posters for Poetry Center readings. These colorful, exuberant works are emblematic of the times as well as the legendary poets whose visits they commemorate—among them Ai, Elizabeth Bishop, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Denise Levertov, and Gary Snyder.
