Poetry at The Dalí featuring Jeff Goodby and Hank Hine
Poetry at The Dalí is an ongoing series hosted by Helen Wallace, occurring on the second Thursday of each month through May 2020.

For this special edition of Poetry at The Dalí, Museum Director Hank Hine and his friend, marketing legend and Museum Trustee, Jeff Goodby share the stage for an evening of readings from their work Thirty Days Two Writers, the result of  a monthlong, coast-to-coast exchange between these longtime friends and collaborators. Join us for this unique opportunity to hear from two extraordinarily talented individuals, stepping outside the bounds of their individually distinguished careers, as they read and discuss the body of epistolary poems they created together. The evening  promises to delight and entertain poetry lovers, marketing professionals, Museum goers and pop culture enthusiasts alike, in a special meeting of the minds facilitated by St. Petersburg Poet Laureate Helen Wallace. Following the presentation, there will be an audience Q&A.

Cost: Free (Parking is free for members, as available; $5 parking for nonmembers after 5pm.)
Location: Will Raymund Theater

About the Poets


Jeff Goodby

Jeff Goodby
Jeff grew up in Rhode Island and graduated from Harvard, where he wrote for the Harvard Lampoon. He worked as a newspaper reporter in Boston, and his illustrations have been published in TIME, Mother Jones and Harvard Magazine. He began his advertising career at J. Walter Thompson and was lucky enough to meet the legendary Hal Riney, whom he still thinks of as his mentor, at Ogilvy & Mather. It was with Riney that Goodby learned his reverence for surprise, humor, craft and restraint. He also met a guy named Rich Silverstein at Ogilvy & Mather. They founded GS&P in 1983. Since then, the two have won just about every advertising award imaginable. Two commercials he directed were selected to be among the top 30 advertising films of the 1990s by the One Club. In 2006 he was inducted into the Advertising Hall of Fame. Jeff lives in Oakland, California, with his family, a dog, a cat, three horses and probably some other things he doesn’t know about.

Hank Hine

Hank Hine
As Executive Director of The Dali Museum, Hank Hine leads the preeminent and most visited art museum in the Southeast. During his tenure, The Dali has created exhibitions and classroom opportunities for the education and delight of a local, national, and global audience.  Exhibitions made in partnership with other international museums have raised the profile of Dali’s art and contextualized his role in the modern era, bringing increased understanding of Dali, Surrealism and the power of art to enhance the human condition. As Founder and Co-Director of The Dali Museum Innovation Labs, Hine has fused the science of creative problem solving with the transformational experience of visual art to expand individual and corporate capabilities in diverse pursuits. He has extensive experience with contemporary artists and writers and the intersection of media in the current cultural milieu. Dr. Hine’s publications include text and image relationships and intellectual history.
