Opening Reception for O, Miami’s First Retrospective
January 3, 2019, 6-8pm
The Studios of Key West

Every April since 2011, the O, Miami Poetry Festival has embraced the goal of each and every person in Greater Miami encountering a poem during the month of April. Working with artists and organizations of all kinds, they’ve painted poems on rooftops, made them into tattoos, golf-leafed them into urinals, flown them behind airplanes, and sewn them into clothing tags. How To Take the Words Out of a Poem is O, Miami’s first-ever public retrospective, documenting the range and depth of their accomplishment with objects, photos, video and audio.
