We are excited to share that Oneness-Family School Alum Taylor Johnson was selected as the first ever Poet-in-Residence at the Guggenheim Museum!
Taylor is the author of Inheritance (Alice James Books, 2020). He is also the winner of the 2021 Norma Farber First Book Award from the Poetry Society of America, a recipient of the 2017 Larry Neal Writers’ Award from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, and the 2021 Judith A. Markowitz Award for Emerging Writers from Lambda Literary. His work appears in Poetry Magazine, The Paris Review, The Baffler, Scalawag, and elsewhere.
The Guggenheim launched its Poet-In-Residence program in collaboration with the Academy of American Poets this year. In his new role, Taylor will work with Guggenheim staff to develop, organize, and participate in a yearlong series of public programs including poetry readings, workshops, performances, and activations designed for a range of audiences. These presentations by contemporary poets and writers will take place throughout the year in connection with the exhibitions on view.
