Soliman poem NPS

In our ongoing pursuit of all-things-poetry-walk comes this ambitious project by poet/performance artist Moheb Soliman. Soliman’s project, H.O.M.E.S. (Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, Superior), explores “the place of nature in modernity, identity, and belonging.” He has tracked, on land, the entire coastline of the Great Lakes and has formed partnerships with local stakeholders in the region. One outcome of his meandering is a series of “nature poems masquerading as official park signs” on trails at Pictured Rocks, Apostle Islands, and Indiana Dunes National Lakeshores, and Isle Royale National Park.

You can learn more about the artist, his art, poetry, residencies and the HOMES project on Moheb Soliman’s website. There’s more about the Great Lakes installation on the National Parks Service site and still more in a brief story in The Detroit News.
