“Crosscurrents: A Connecticut Sea Grant Art Exhibition”

January 24 - April 7, 2019
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 24, 5:30 - 7:30pm

“Crosscurrents” celebrates the ground-breaking, multimedia work of 13 artists whose creations have enhanced awareness of Connecticut’s coastal environment and maritime heritage. For ten years Connecticut Sea Grant has promoted the understanding and appreciation of the marine environment of Long Island Sound through its competitive Arts Support Awards Program, which funds the creation of works by individuals or groups active in the visual, literary, or performing arts. The Program has encouraged the production of art that explores important environmental and social issues facing marine and maritime communities. This exhibition offers a vibrant visual dialogue that reflects the beauty and complexity of our local natural heritage.
