      Billy Collins, presents “Poetry, Painting, and the Condition of Music”

      Widely-acclaimed poet, two-term U.S. Poet Laureate, and Senior Distinguished Fellow of the Winter Park Institute at Rollins College, Billy Collins, presents “Poetry, Painting, and the Condition of Music.”
      Distinguishing himself as one of the most prolific and celebrated poets of our time, two-term
      U. S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins occupies a rarefied place at the intersection of critical and popular acclaim. His well-chosen words, often initially laid down in playful and humorous tones, generally make a subtle but sharp turn to thought-provoking revelations about life’s more serious and contemplative subjects.

      No living poet is any better at his craft, and Collins has won many coveted accolades for his 12 books of poetry. These collections have appeared regularly on The New York Times Best Seller list, and he has been honored with fellowships and awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Mark Twain Award for Humor in Poetry, and, most recently, he was elected to the prestigious American Academy of Arts & Letters.
