Syracuse sidewalks get a "splash" of poetry

Invisible paintings are revealed in the rain

SYRACUSE (WSYR-TV) - You may have walked past one of Syracuse's newest art exhibits this summer without realizing it. 

"Splash Poetry," a presentation of the Syracuse Poster Project has been featured on the streets of downtown Syracuse since May. 

The paintings are made using invisible paint and only revealed under rain or a splash of water. The poems are haikus written by local authors. 

"It may be small and very short. But as long as it elicits a positive feeling from someone in any way, we've done our job," Joseph Murphy, a Syracuse Poster Project board member who has been leading the initiative, said. 

There are currently ten paintings throughout the streets of downtown Syracuse. 

If you want to download a map with locations of the poems, you can do so on the Syracuse Poster Project website
