A RIVER LOST AND FOUND: THE ANDROSCOGGIN IN TIME AND PLACE
A RIVER LOST AND FOUND: THE ANDROSCOGGIN IN TIME AND PLACE exhibit at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art opens on July 13th and runs through September 16, 2012.
This interactive installation will highlight the cross-disciplinary research of two faculty members at the College, one an environmental historian and the other a photographer. Until recently, the Androscoggin River was labeled as one of the ten most polluted rivers in the country. By constellating texts, photographs, and oral histories, Professors Matthew Klingle and Michael Kolster pose important questions about the shifting cultural and economic status of waterways such as this one. Once devastated by contamination and now partially restored, the Androscoggin has entered a new phase of life and this project captures the complexity of both its legacy and its potential.
