VOYAGES AND THE GREAT AGE OF SAIL
VOYAGES AND THE GREAT AGE OF SAIL

May 7 through September 4, 2011

The University of New England and the Saco Museum have teamed up this summer to create an exhibition on the great age of sail in Maine. Dr. Elizabeth A. De Wolfe, Professor of History at the University of New England, and Camille Smalley, Program and Education Manager for the Saco Museum, have team taught an exhibition class titled "Voyages and the Great Age of Sail." The resulting exhibition of the same name, curated by students in the class, will be on view at the Saco Museum May 7 through September 4, 2011. Voyages features a treasure trove of artifacts related to the Saco sea captain Tristram Jordan —paintings, decorative arts, navigational tools, and more—in order to explore nineteenth-century maritime history. A free public opening reception will take place on Friday, May 6, at 5:30 p.m.
