Proposal for Poem Wheel, an interactive sculpture by Gregory Curci for Merrimack College, North Andover, MA. in collaboration with poet Andrea Cohen.


Poem wheel get’s its inspiration from Tibetan prayer wheels. It is hoped that the sculpture will inspire people to interact with it and that the words engraved on the wheel will inspire them to pause and think about the context of their lives and the world around them. The connection to the wind ties the sculpture to the Earth and the processes of nature that provide the sustenance for all life on our planet. The sculpture will also serve as a place marker for the Writer’s House. The sculpture is constructed of stainless steel, and be 13 ft tall to the wind mill, and about 6 1/2 ft tall to the wheel.
