ArtCenter/South Florida invites the community for a group poetry reading. The event features 14 local poets and culminates ArtCenterâ€™s month-long â€œPin Up Pop Up Poetry,â€ part of the O, Miami poetry festival.
Throughout the month of April, ArtCenter has invited local poets to push-pin their poems onto the walls of its common areas. More than 300 poems have been push-pinned onto the walls, featuring original work, drawings, photographs, mementos and other inspirations. The month-long interactive program was created by ArtCenter resident artist Beatricia Sagar.
Poets invited to read at the event are from diverse backgrounds with literary styles ranging from spoken word to the professorial, from the published to the non-published, and even a guitar playing scribe. They share a strong passion for the written word and a need to be heard.
Poets at the April 24 reading event include:
Atlas, Aza, Mary Kate Azcuy, Marcus Blake, Jeffrey Bustos, Gianni Cohen, William Curtis, George Durham, Maha Adachi Earth, Diego Flores, Pierre Max Freesney, Dana Rodriguez, Beatricia Sagar and Chloe Firetto-Toomey.
