Sam directed the Urban Arts Literature Project for the MBTA Orange Line, which placed poetry and prose, in granite, at the nine new stations. These literary pieces remain one of Boston's best treasures celebrating the various community cultures. Sam remained my writing teacher and advisor/friend - even expressing his opinions on my writings when I visited him in rehab.
In honor of Sam's contribution to the Boston's literary life, the City of Boston issued a Proclamation declaring March 27 as Sam Cornish Day.:
About Sam Cornish's previous work:
Sam Cornish and Folks Like Me is to poetry what Ray Charles and the song "Georgia" is to music. Both men were constructed for their art forms.
See Ellen Steinbaum's story on the Urban Arts Literature Project. I had the pleasure of describing it to a Northeastern student, last night, who daily walks the path up to Forest Hills Station. https://www.ellensteinbaum.com/city_type/06_10_08.html
