We are excited to present Poetry in Union: Railway Lines and Valentines, a public art experience in collabration with The League of Canadian Poets. Join us on Wednesday, February 13th in the West Wing for a truly romantic, enlightening and breathtaking experience.

Share your story with one of eight of Toronto’s strongest, most diverse and most talented poets who will provide you with a personalized poem. This is a unique opportunity to connect directly with an artist to create a romantic valentine’s gift, or to celebrate a friend, experience, or key moment from your life.

This Valentine’s Day–themed event is the perfect way to add a touch of art, poetry, and romance to the daily lives of commuters and travelers in Toronto. In addition to original poetry, commuters will have access to free treats and hot chocolate, romantic gifts, spoken word poetry performances and a live piano performance.

The eight poets who will be making Poetry in Union possible are Lesley Belleau, Dominique Bernier-Cormier, Ronna Bloom, Michael Fraser, Suparna Ghosh, Jessica Heimstra, Max Layton and Rajinderpal Pal. The event will also feature an introduction from Toronto’s Poet Laureate, Anne Michaels, and spoken word performances by SPIN El Poeta and Lara Bozabalian.
