Additionally, guests are invited to join a performed virtual trip along Oklahoma’s geopolitical boundary with loving lost GPS and interdisciplinary poet Moheb Soliman beginning at 8 p.m. A 2018 Tulsa Artist Fellow from Egypt and the Midwest, Moheb’s work often deals withnature, modernity, identity, and belonging through writing, performance, and installation projects. In the past few years he’s explored these extensively through the site of the Great Lakes region, which he’s lived all around and finds fascinating as an environmentally coherent borderland central to the history of North America.

All events are free and open to the public.
