Chesapeake Visual Icons Opening Reception
May 17 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The area surrounding the Chesapeake Bay has a distinct visual appeal that is centered on the iconic images of the Bay, its people, and the incredibly diverse bounty of both the water and land. From the arch of the Bay Bridge rising over the Chesapeake to the Ward Brothers in their workshop, this exhibit features historical pictures that have shaped the wider understanding of the Chesapeake. Paired with the historical images, contemporary photographers will display works that feature the Chesapeake through both cultural and environmental perspectives, offering a powerful sense of where we have been and where we are.
