Event Details

 

Come spend the day exploring Mystic Seaport and going behind-the-scenes with our Exhibits team who will give a sneak peek of exhibit-related plans for the upcoming voyage of the Charles W. Morgan. The day begins with a hard-hat guided tour of the ship’s restoration, including non-public spaces. Then we’ll visit a new collaborative exhibit of artworks inspired by the project and created by sculptors, graphic designers, videographers, and illustrators at the Brooklyn-based Dalvero Academy.

We’ll end the morning with a brief presentation and discussion about plans for a groundbreaking new exhibit on whales, whaling, and whalers to open after the New England voyage in summer 2014. Lunch will be on your own. The afternoon is free time, with a chance to explore the many other formal and hands-on exhibit spaces, watch the craft and sailors’ skills demos, catch a planetarium show, or just enjoy the beautiful fall foliage and river views.

Hosts: Jan Crocker, Co-Chair NEMA Exhibits PAG and New England Representative to the Board of NAME, and Jeff Crewe, Exhibit Designer, Mystic Seaport Museum

This event is limited to 15 people.


If there is interest the group will go out to a local restaurant for dinner at their own expense at the end of the day. Can't make it to the workshop? You can still join the group for dinner. See registration form for this option.
