The Guggenheim is collaborating with the Academy of American Poets to launch an open call for its second year-long Poet-in-Residence position for a contemporary poet with a strong interest in public engagement. The selected Poet-in-Residence, working with the Guggenheim’s Public Programs department, will design activations and experiences with poetry as an artistic form for the museum’s adult, teen, and youth audiences. Poetry has long been celebrated at the Guggenheim, beginning with the Academy of American Poets’s presentation of poetry readings in the Peter B. Lewis Theater in 1963.

The 2023 Poet-in-Residence will play a core role in the Guggenheim’s public programming throughout the year and will plan and participate in events that may include on-site readings, workshops, and activations in the museum. The selected Poet-in-Residence will receive a $20,000 honorarium.
