Opening Winter 2023, Gulf of Maine EcoArts and Maine Maritime Museum will debut SeaChange: Darkness & Light in the Gulf of Maine, a year-long art and natural science exhibition that immerses visitors into the rich ecosystem of Cashes Ledge in the Gulf of Maine to invite reflection on our collective human impact on our shared oceans in hopes of preserving their future.
The hands of many artists have come together to recreate the remote underwater mountain range of Cashes Ledge through painting, sculpture, and video projection. Designed for exploration, this exhibit hopes to inspire environmental stewardship through ecological beauty. The SeaChange EcoLab provides hands-on opportunities for visitors to learn more about current marine science and industry initiatives innovating solutions to protect ocean biodiversity and support healthy fisheries.
This experiential exhibit asks visitors to become participants: become an artist, a scientist, an activist, a politician. Only together can we find ways to honor and protect the Gulf of Maine.
“The most important thing we extract from the sea is our very existence.”
—Sylvia Earle, marine biologist, oceanographer, explorer, author, lecturer and National Geographic explorer-in-residence since 1998
