PHLF’s Newest Poetry and Art Book, by Pittsburgh Gifted Center Students
Poems and charcoal drawings by 41 fifth- and sixth-grade students from the Pittsburgh Gifted Center are featured in a 78-page book, to be released in January by PHLF. This edition of Pittsburgh Details in Poetry and Art is dedicated to Ann Power Wardrop (1915-2016), a devoted preservationist and trustee emeritus of PHLF who inspired us to help young people see that historic places in Pittsburgh are works of art, worthy of restoration, and sources of great beauty, enriching our daily lives and contributing to our unique cultural heritage.
Click here to read five “group poems” about Pittsburgh and several individual poems. The students were required to use personification and to imagine what it would be like to be the architectural detail they selected.
Please visit our library on the fourth floor of The Landmarks Building to read the entire book, and to read many other Poetry and Art books published by PHLF since 2003.
