This exhibit of Daisy Braun's plankton-inspired sculptures will kick off the Maine Maritime Museum’s summer series "Uncharted: Maine Artists | Maine Waters." Braun’s installation draws inspiration from collaborations with local marine scientists. Please join us at the exhibit's opening reception on June 23rd, 2022, from 5-7pm! All are welcome. The artists featured in "Uncharted: Maine Artists | Maine Waters" use their chosen media to question, challenge, and celebrate our human relationship with the sea. In this unprecedented moment, humans are witnessing a rapid change in the oceans and the environmental systems that we have come to rely on for resources for – and respite from – our everyday lives. The future of this relationship is uncharted and hangs on the collective decisions we make today. This unknown can elicit both hope and anxiety, both of which can become a catalyst for change. The work of Daisy Braun, Heather Lyon, and Shoshanna White invite us to reflect on our personal connections to the oceans. Through meaningful play on scale, unexpected visual juxtapositions, and powerful performance, this exhibition series will ask us to measure the weight of our reliance on the oceans in an effort to better understand our responsibility and accountability in preserving their future.
