Reasons to go to…New York

June 24, 2015

NYBG - Octavio Paz Poetry WalkIn connection with its “blockbuster exhibition,” “FRIDA KAHLO: Art, Garden, Life,” The New York Botanical Garden is currently displaying poems of 20th-century Mexican poet and Nobel Prize winner Octavio Paz (1914–1998), many referencing native plants and flowers. Co-presented with the Poetry Society of America, the Octavio Paz Poetry Walk is a continuation of the Garden’s Poetry for Every Season series. On Saturday, September 19, 2015, at 2:00pm, Poetry Walk curator Rachel Eliza Griffiths, whose work has been influenced by both Paz and Kahlo, will present a reading of selected poems in the Ross Hall. Paz’s poems will remain on view through November 1, 2015.
