Restoring a Past, Charting a Future: An Artistic Discovery of America’s Whaling Legacy by Dalvero Academy.

The exhibit is three years in the making and the product of many, many classes held up at the Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, documenting the restoration of the whale-ship Charles W.Morgan, the only one of her kind left in the world. Not only did the artists create reportage of the restoration itself, they used the ideas and research conducted during their reportage work to illustrate the history and cultural significance of the ship. The renewed Morgan will set her course on an environmental mission, and the work in the show addresses that as well. The exhibit features 24 artists, including Dalvero instructors Veronica Lawlor and Margaret Hurst, and showcases our illustration through drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, fiber arts, video and animation.

The exhibit opens on April 28, 2012 and runs until September 9, 2013. We hope to see you there!
Our Mystic Seaport project and the Dalvero artists are mentioned by Quentin Snediker, director of the Mystic Shipyard, in an August 17th New York Times article about the whaling ship Morgan!
Quote: “We get layer upon layer of information,” he said. The least technical of the methods centers on a group of young artists who are sketching the various stages of the Morgan’s disassembly and repair. “It’s great to see it through their eyes,” Mr. Snediker said.”
