Coming soon to Mystic, CT!

Always great to be working back at the Mystic Seaport Museum! 

A new exhibit in the Thompson Gallery opens May 28th!

Check out their website for more info on "Story Boats - The Tales They Tell."

Here's an excerpt of the exhibit write up:

Mystic Seaport Museum has more than 450 small watercraft as well as a fleet of larger historic vessels tethered to our docks along the Mystic River, four of which are designated National Historic Landmarks. As a whole, these vessels represent an extraordinary array of design, purpose, and materials beginning in the early 19th century to the present, from dugout canoes to duck boats to Boston Whalers and everything in between and beyond. What ties these boats together thematically, and is the inspiration for the exhibition Story Boats: The Tales They Tell, is the remarkable richness of human interest stories behind them, which include themes of hope, exploration, survival, joy, adventure, sport, immigration, and many others.

Project Preview: Art Complex Museum

The Art Complex Museum located in Duxbury, MA is the permanent home of the art and object collection, as well as the reference library, of Carl A. Weyerhaeuser and his wife Edith Greenleaf Weyerhaeuser. Abernathy Lighting Design (ALD), a studio of Eos Lightmedia USA, is proud to have worked with Proun Design to bring to life the new Founders Gallery; a deeper dive into the lives and history of the Weyerhaeusers and their collection. 

Working with small format LED spotlights, integrated LED lighting systems within the exhibit structures, and a small expansion to the base building lighting systems, ALD was able to bring into focus the story of these amazing collectors and highlight some of the signature pieces which now reside in the museum's collection.

The museum opens to the public on May 22nd. If you are ever in eastern Massachusetts we hope you will stop in!
