ArtBeat: John Morse’s “Roadside Haiku”

September 17th, 2010, 3:07 pm by Greg

We love public art.
We love found poetry.
And, yes, we do have a particular love for haiku.

So the “Roadside Haiku” art installation project by Atlanta artist John Morse resonates deeply with us – especially since it’s election season and those ubiquitous corrugated plastic bandit signs seem to be popping up on lawns everywhere these days.

Thanks to Ed Atkeson for the tip…
