This month: 50th Anniversary exhibit at Washburn Cultural Center

WCC Exhibit

Visit the Washburn Cultural Center in June to explore and enjoy the intersection of art, poetry and science.

The “A is for Apostle Islands” and “Island Intersections” exhibit displays the poetry and visual artwork from two projects celebrating the 50th anniversary of Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.

Original visual art and poetry for the ABCs featured in the forthcoming book, A is for Apostle Islands, edited by Lucy Tyrrell, will be displayed.

In addition the exhibit will include trios of “Island Intersections,” i.e. science summaries and the interpretations or responses of visual art and poetry that emerged from 15 science presentations at the Apostle Islands 50th Anniversary Resource Stewardship Symposium held March 30-31 and available online on the Friends website. Dozens of artists and poets have collaborated and contributed to this exhibit.

The exhibit runs June 2- 30, 2021, 12–5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 12-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Get more information here.
