Poetry in Vizcaya's gardens
|Actor James Franco with|
poet Frank Bidart.
Frank Bidart is a National Book Critics Circle Award-winning poet and will be reading from his well-known works including Metaphysical Dog (FSG, 2013). Poet Peg Boyers, adjunct professor at Columbia University and executive editor of Salmagundi, will also read from To Forget Venice. Informal readings from FIU Honors College students sharing their original works inspired by Vizcaya will be featured as part of the “Vizcaya as Text” academic project.
April also features a poetry garden walk inspiration experience where visitors encounter prompts to create their own poems throughout Vizcaya’s gardens and grounds. Created by poet Nick Vagnoni, this poetry tour encourages visitors to look at Vizcaya through a different lens and to write their own poems in response. O, Miami will gather poems created for their archives.
Poetry garden walk inspiration experience, ongoing from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm daily except Tuesdays through April 30.
