Opening Reception: Welcome To Egg Rock
April 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
The National Audubon Society’s Seabird Institute and Waterfall Arts are pleased to present Welcome to Egg Rock: 50 Years of Seabird Conservation by Maine-raised artist and printmaker, Pippin Frisbie-Calder and Terrie Frisbie. With floor-to-ceiling prints and paintings, this immersive, multimedia art installation transports participants to the world’s first restored seabird colony on Eastern Egg Rock in Midcoast Maine.
Sponsored by Stanley Buick Maine
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Project Puffin, Frisbie-Calder and Frisbie bring to life the inspiring return of Maine’s Atlantic Puffins after nearly disappearing due to hunting, and the challenges they now face with climate change. Surrounded by the sights and sounds of this small, six-acre island, participants are invited to peek into puffin burrows, explore the Egg Rock field station, and take home their very own handmade puffin print.
“This is an exhibit of hope, where the actions of a few scientists changed the outcomes of seabirds forever. Art can communicate to people of all ages and backgrounds to understand this powerful story and contemplate their own actions for the future of seabirds,” said Pippin Frisbie-Calder.
Exhibition runs from Friday, April 14th through Friday, September 1st.
