DESCRIPTION
 
history
Located at the corner of College and Bushnell Streets, the Beloit Poetry Garden is a focal point for the college and local communities. It was created as work of art commissioned for the Lannan Foundation in Los Angeles in 1992; when the foundation moved into a new location, it was dismantled.
In 1999, elements of the original garden were installed on the grounds of Beloit College under the guidance of the artist, Siah Armajani.
The Beloit Poetry Garden consists of a series of benches, ceramic pots, wooden tables, and steel gates interspersed among greenery and floral plantings. It is a popular venue for performances, presentations, class meetings, and quiet relaxation.
