GRAND MANAN MURAL PROJECT
The Grand Manan Mural Project was completed in the summer of 2016, during the second year of collaboration between the Bowdoin Scientific Station on Kent Island and the Grand Manan Museum. The mural depicts the intertidal zone, whose extreme range defines the Bay of Fundy, with a focus on the natural history of intertidal species and islanders’ relationship with their ecosystem. In 2015 I worked with Bowdoin student Isaac Jaegerman and Grand Manan artist Sara Griffin to paint the first three walls. Mount Allison University student Shauna Gass joined the project in 2016 to complete the mural, which used painting to create an immersive experience of a complex and fragile ecosystem for tourists and the local community.
