MTA Arts & Design

This guide compiles all Poetry in Motion poems since 2012, celebrating the unique dialogue of poetry and artwork commissioned by MTA Arts & Design. You are invited to enjoy the poems that have appeared in the subway, learn about the poets and artists, find the original artwork in the MTA system, and listen to a selection of poems read by the poets.

The Best of Poetry In Motion, an anthology published by W.W. Norton & Company in 2017, is available for purchase through the Transit Museum store.

Poetry in Motion is a collaboration between the Poetry Society of America and MTA Arts & Design, with design by MTA Chief of Creative Services.
