Erik Lomen’s Mural Inspires Poetry Reading

September 21, 2011

Alumnus Erik Lomen graduated from Montserrat in 2010. His most recent endeavor is a mural that covers 5 walls on 5 different floors located at 22 Federal St. (corner of Federal and Chapman) in Beverly. Each of the walls was simultaneously created and represents poets from the North Shore, including Jim Dunn (1st), Joe Torra (2nd), Jim Behrle (3rd), James and Amanda Cook (4th), and Gerrit Lansing (5th). All are still living and will be reading  Saturday, Sept. 24 at 5 pm at 22 Federal St.

Come enjoy refreshments, poetry readings, and great conversation from the North Shore poets that inspired Erik Lomen’s mural at 22 Federal St.

Visit Erik’s blog to see the progress of his mural and to get a better sense of how this poetry reading came to be!
