If you take a ride in a Green Cab sometime in the next six months you may notice something special. Each of their 41 Toyota Prius cabs will include a unique installation of poetry paired with a stunning photograph. HYBRID: transported by word and image combines poetry from 43 poets, curated by Sara Parrell, with photographic images by Thomas Ferrella. The show will run for six months beginning tomorrow (Saturday, May 3rd). A BLINK grant from the City of Madison has helped to make the project possible.
