“Public art creates chance encounters on a pleasant walk or bike ride, it becomes a landmark, a gathering place, navigational aid, urban atmosphere, a point of civic pride, a place of play, or quiet contemplation and imaginative leaps, daydreams and contemplative wanderings.”— Alex McKay


“When public art speaks, it can transport, captivate, and inspire. It can flirt, play, surprise, and ignite. It can honour our loved ones, the brave who have fallen, our heroes, our history…” — Salina Larocque


What do 13 authors, 50 stories, nuns, egg salad and a guitar man, and the City of Windsor all have in common?

The answer is In The Middle Space, an anthology that explores Windsor’s rich public art culture through poetry. Thirteen authors from various backgrounds all come together to celebrate public art by way of sharing their stories. The book is composed of 50 poems that celebrate the city’s public art through storytelling. “This is really a marriage of public art and poetry – in essence, living art,” says Marty Gervais, Windsor’s poet laureate emeritus, who has been working with more than a dozen students in the University of Windsor’s publishing practicum course to produce a book that is part of the South Shore series under the auspices of the city’s Poet Laureate program.
