On May 23rd the Poetry Society of America held their annual Spring Benefit Dinner at the beautiful New York Botanical Gardens. This year, Arts for Transit Director Sandra Bloodworth was honored for the MTA’s great leadership and flair in re-launching our beloved Poetry in Motion program in 2012. Our partnership with the Poetry Society of America and our colleagues at New York City Transit has allowed us to bring poetry, paired with stunning artwork, to five and a half million subway riders daily. We were honored and truly touched to receive this recognition and feel the entire PSA staff equally deserves such appreciation. Thank you to the Poetry Society of America and all the fans of Poetry in Motion.
