Join environmental artist/sculptor, Ana Flores, artist in residence with Tubac Center of the Art on the inaugural “Poetry Walk” along the Anza Trail to experience, “Poetry of the Wild.”  “Poetry of the Wild invites the public out for a walk to see their world anew through the keenly felt perspectives of poets and artists. Using a unique presentation of “poetry boxes” that combine art and poetry, the project serves as a catalyst for exploring our towns and considering how place informs mindfulness.” – Ana Flores.  For more information on Poetry of the Wild, click here. (Meet at the entrance to the Anza Trail at the Presidio Park)
