Crosscurrents: A Connecticut Sea Grant Art Exhibition 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, and performing arts. The Program has encouraged the production of art that explores the biodiversity and health of Long Island Sound as well as important environmental and social issues facing marine and maritime communities. Such issues include marine pollution, the decline of the world’s whale populations, and the role of women in U.S. maritime history. By bringing together compelling works by a series of award-winning artists, this exhibition offers a vibrant visual dialogue that reflects the beauty and complexity of our local natural heritage.
