Join O, Miami’s creative team Seth Labenz, Melody Santiago Cummings and Scott Cunningham for a private tour of the poetry exhibition “Post Haste” on Bal Harbour’s beach walk followed by a live poetry reading and cocktail in the Seaview Hotel’s Emerald room bar and lounge.
Please RSVP to email@example.com by September 22.
Post Haste is a series of four visual poems created by O, Miami for Bal Harbour’s beachwalk. Inspired by pre-war marketing for the Burma Shave Company—famous for its advertising campaigns featuring humorous rhyming poems on small sequential highway signs—the poems are presented according to the speed of the beachwalk’s usage as a thoroughfare for biking, jogging, and walking. Each poem is divided into six signs and is designed to be read in one continuous pass, and in one direction, though all four poems, taken together, are also in conversation with each other. Post Haste is on view June 1 – October 31, 2017.
