The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) has opened up submissions for its annual Poet’s Pause poetry competition.
Writers are invited to submit original, unpublished poems with the winner to be displayed at the Poet’s Pause sculpture sites in Alta Lake Park. One of the sites features large, metal chimes and is called Lost in Sound, located at the north end of the park. The other showcases large Adirondack chairs at the south end called Lakeside Couple.
The poems should reflect the theme of the sculptures—“listening” for the chimes and “togetherness” for the chairs. They should be no longer than 240 words.
“The Resort Municipality of Whistler is a proud champion of the art community, and supports emerging and established artists in a variety of mediums through our public art program,” says Whistler mayor Jack Crompton in a release. “Public art creates a rich resort experience and inspires creative conversations and thought.”
The winners will also receive $200 and have their work read at a council meeting in April.
