Margulies Art Through Poetic Text
By Isabella Marie Garcia, PAC 2018 (spookyrose.wordpress.com)

Through the collaborative effort of the students, and Giselle Lopez’s incredible talents as event planner, FIU Honors College co-professors John William Bailly and Richard Blanco‘s “Poetry Art Community” (PAC) course hosted a poetry gala at the Margulies Collection in the heart of Wynwood. Students and accomplished poets, Richard Blanco, Michael Hettich, Caridad Moro-Gronlier, Nikki Moustaki Brandt, and Carlos Pintado, performed their ekphrastic responses to the art within the collection. Thanks to Mr. Margulies and his gracious opening of the collection to the students, both throughout the spring semester and on the eve of the Poetic Palette, guests were welcomed to witness physical art transformed into poetic text. While enjoying drinks courtesy of Loco Por Ti, both the FIU community and general Miami community were gifted a night where art transcended the realm of physical space into spoken tributes.
