Bal Harbour Beachwalk

Unscripted Bal Harbour and O, Miami unveil an original outdoor poetry exhibition at Bal Harbour's beachwalk.

Join the O, Miami team for cocktails on Sunday, September 24th at 4pm for the Sea View Hotel's historic Emerald Room. Afterwards, we'll lead a private tour of the exhibition.

Post Haste is a series of four visual poems created by O, Miami for Bal Harbour's beachwalk. Inspired by a series of 1980’s roadside ads for the Burma Shave Company—famous for its advertising campaigns of posting humorous rhyming poems on small sequential highway roadside signs—the poems are presented to be read at 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.
