May Prentice House & Poetry Park

As the new home of the Wick Poetry Center, the May Prentice House has been restored and renovated to provide a larger and more flexible space for Wick programs and community use. In addition to housing the Wick staff and intern offices, the house offers a state-of-the-art digital classroom, the Stan and Tom Wick Library, the Jo Woodward Reading Room, and a third-floor Poet's Loft for quiet reflection and student conferences.

The "Seated Earth, 2014" sculpture is featured in the Poetry Park adjacent to the Wick Poetry Center's new home. The 12-foot bronze sculpture was designed and donated by Kent State alumnus, former art faculty member and Wick Poetry Center co-founder Robert Wick.

Dedication was held September 26, 2014 to celebrate the Poetry Center's new home.
