The Poetry Center

The University of Arizona Poetry Center is one of Tucson’s most valuable cultural resources. Founded in 1962, the center has hosted many of the most influential names in poetry and has one of the largest collections of poetry in the United States. In 2017, the center acquired its 50,000th book and received a $500,000 grant from the Art for Justice Fund, the largest in the center’s history.
