2022: Rochester’s Peace Plaza Pavers Provoked Perturbed Poetry
Looking back at 2022, this story was pretty huge because a LOT of people did NOT like the Peace Plaza pavers.
The recreated Peace Plaza, in Downtown Rochester, Minnesota, with raised lettering on the pavers, has raised eyebrows, brought appreciation from some, and scuffed knees to others. It's one of the Destination Medical Center projects going on in town.
Rather than traffic in angry comments, I thought it would be fun to see what the inhabitants of Spotted In Rochester could come up with if given an opportunity to express themselves.
"Creative Opportunity!" How 'bout a rhyme, poem, limerick, or haiku that tells us how you feel about the raised lettering in the Peace Plaza?
And holy mother-of-pearl did SE Minnesota come out to play. You can see the whole post here, but the very best of the best are in the gallery below (chosen by a team of judges within our building...some slight editing for curse words has happened)
