Listening to Liberty

Explore stories of art, architecture, and liberty with the Wick Poetry Center’s Listening Wall

As a part of the collaboration, Kent State also provides a Listening Wall, an interactive digital tool created by the Wick Poetry Center, that will allow a creative exploration of the relationship between Italy and the United States incorporating the themes of art, architecture, liberty, and the human condition. The Listening Wall will allow users to view historical documents, oral histories, and multimedia stories centered on the themes of the exhibit and then to create and share their own poetic reflections.
