« All Events

Long-time GMAC collaborator and Great Lakes-centric poet and artist Moheb Soliman returns to Grand Marais this year for a new project: A Poem of Sublime Proportion. And he has a simple request of you: give him four words. Moheb seeks to source language from 10% of Grand Marais’ population (local, visitor, other, doesn’t matter!) to incorporate into a line of a poem about Great Lakes nature/culture/sense of place. This line will be embedded in sculpture somewhere on the Grand Marais shoreline. Other lines will be developed in this way with other communities all around the Great Lakes and also embedded in sculpture on their shoreline, accumulating to a whole poem, circling the entire region, using locally sourced language and materials. Come learn more about the ambitious vision, and the extensive logistics of this interdisciplinary poetry/land art/social practice project and contribute your four words that define this corner of the region to you. And if you can, help to imagine its possible form through your own renderings or just conversation with Moheb at Studio 21. Refreshments served!
