Water, Water Everywhere, Paean to a Vanishing Resource

Please join us for an extraordinary exhibition of great importance to all:

“Water, Water Everywhere
Paean to a Vanishing Resource”
“Water is the world’s most crucial resource and the basis for all earthly life. Its preservation and protection may be our greatest environmental challenge. The global water crisis affects everyone, from those lacking enough to those experiencing uncontrollable floods that wipe away homes and land and wildlife.
Water, Water Everywhere is comprised of 30 second to 30 minute films from forty-one artists worldwide exploring water issues from the political to the personal and from ethics to
aesthetics, with works that are documentary, experimental, educational, humorous, solemn, animated or acted.”
(Jennifer Heath, curator)
In harmony with this theme the exhibition will include 2 and 3 dimensional work by regional artists.

THATCamp Maritime to be held in Groton, CT 4-5 March 2016

THATCamp Maritime will be meeting in Groton, CT at the beautiful, historic mansion of Morton Plant at the University of Connecticut / Avery Point.

Please mark your calendars for 4-5 March 2016.

The “build” stage of the camp will construct several “special interest trails” focused on Maritime Connecticut.  These trails will highlight the rich educational and heritage features found Connecticut as well as a tie into the State’s current-day maritime industries.  These trails might feature educational institutions, outdoor museums, lighthouse museums, military bases and memorials, historic and modern-day ferries, and similar attractions.
