(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday: Edgar Allan Poe

A life-sized statue of Edgar Allan Poe in Boston, Massachusetts by Stefanie Rocknak. Date Installed: 2014 (Photo: Michael Howell)

Once you start looking for it, public art really is everywhere. My husband passed this guy while strolling down Boylston Street in Boston, Massachusetts last week.

This life-sized statue of Edgar Allan Poe was created by Stefanie Rocknak, and installed at the corner of Boylston and Charles Street South in 2014. You can’t see it in the above picture but there’s a tell-tale heart beating on a pile of books on the back of the statue. My husband kindly texted me a second picture showing it.

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
