On Tuesday, April 16, Betsy’s annual Poetry Broadside Exhibition opens with a light box display titled Manuscripts: the illuminated broadsides exhibition. Fragments of poems from both contemporary poets who will be in residence at The Betsy during O, Miami and internationally renowned poets with a link to Florida, past and present, will be interpreted by graphic artists and projected on light boxes. Miami artist Andrew Reid is curator and principal designer for the project.
In honor of National Poetry Month (April 2013) and in partnership with O, Miami, the month long festival that celebrates poetry throughout Miami Dade County, The Betsy South Beach has a full slate of events, promotions and interactive activities on tap. Produced by the University of Wynwood with principal support provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, O, Miami creates a series of events and projects with the simple goal of every person in Miami-Dade County finding a poem during the month of April. As host hotel for O, Miami, The Betsy provides accommodation for out of town poets in its Writer’s Room and in hotel rooms; as well as presenting public readings, salons, parties and the annual Poetry Broadside Exhibition.
