EUGENE, Ore. – The city of Eugene is bringing art to one of its parking garages in the form of poetry.

The city has unveiled the winners of its “Step into Poetry” competition. Poets were encouraged to submit pieces about Eugene.

The city got 90 entrees from 56 poets, and officials picked nine of them to install in the garages.

The poems will be features on a plaque and hung in the downtown Overpark parking garage.

Each poem has an augmented-reality code that allows smartphone users to see 3D renderings of the poems and listen to an audio recording voiced by the poet.
