With the help of Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and Professors Richard Blanco and John William Bailly, the FIU Honors CollegePoetry Art Community” (PAC) course entertained and held guests in their step at their first poetry exhibition. Beginning with a series of poetry readings intertwining the voices of well-renowned writers and poets, including Caridad Moro-Gronlier, Carlos Pintado, Nikki Moustaki, Michael Hettich, and Richard Blanco, and six dedicated students, the evening spread into the gardens of Vizcaya, where students stationed themselves in intimate groups to share their work with guests. Both admiring and challenging the beauty and history of Vizcaya, students, many of whom are not English majors, were able to share work they had been working on extensively since visiting Vizcaya early on in the fall semester. Rewarded by the applause and kind responses of guests, students got to be poets and poetesses for an evening under the stars.
