Art Installation #3




Art Installation #3 was 11 poems chalked out around University of Arizona campus over the course of 4 hours Sunday night 11/5/17.  Butcher paper was affixed next to each of the poems with the words "Thoughts? Write them here" and in the corner @UofACreates and the hashtag symbol.  The following day I documented the responses written on butcher paper and removed the paper and erased the poems 24 hours after installing.
