FIELD WORK: Joanne Kyger

On the occasion of Mark di Suvero at Crissy Field, SFMOMA curator of public programs Frank Smigiel and poet and playwright Kevin Killian co-organized a small chapbook of poetry, beautifully hand-produced by Andrew Kenower and Lara Durback. We are posting selections from FIELD WORK on Open Space throughout the fall.


Joanne Kyger has been associated with the poetry community since 1957, when she moved to North Beach from Santa Barbara. Author of over 30 chapbooks and books of poetry, she has taught at Naropa University and the now closed New College of San Francisco. She lives on the coast north of San Francisco. Her volume of collected poems, AS EVER, is published by Penguin Poets.
