Kajak! A Virtual Exhibit 10/20/20 - 12/20/21 at 12:00 am

Kajak! A Virtual Exhibit

Inspired by the full-sized Nunatsiavut kayak given to the College in 1891 and on display in the museum gallery for over 50 years, this exhibit explores making and using traditional kayaks from Greenland, Labrador, and beyond. It features over 20 model kayaks and umiaks, as well as associated equipment, historic film and photographs, and the centerpiece of the exhibit, a full size replica of the 1891 Kajak created for this exhibit.
 
You can explore the full object-based exhibit, as well as various multimedia components, online. Recordings of lectures and other virtual events during the 2020-21 academic year will also be posted here, so be sure to check back.

Films in February: Film Discussion of the Reunited States 02/09/21 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Films in February: Film Discussion of the Reunited States

Please join us for a discussion of the film The Reunited States hosted by the  Unitarian Universalist Church of Brunswick, Maine (uubrunswick.org) and Curtis Memorial Library.

At a time when America is ripping apart at the seams, ?The Reunited States? is a powerful and urgent documentary that follows the unsung heroes on the difficult journey of bridging our political and racial divides. Susan Bro, who lost her daughter when a car drove through a group of counter-protestors in Charlottesville, and David and Erin Leaverton, a Republican couple who travel to all fifty states in an RV to find out what divides us, are just a few of the characters profiled in the film. Each of these bridge-builders have realized that while our divides run deeper than they ever could have imagined, so does the love and hope to bring our country back together. Based on the book of the same name, the film urges us to consider that everyone has a role to play in reuniting the country.

Register to receive the link to the view the film and join the Zoom link for the discussion here: Films in February: The Reunited States – LibCal – Curtis Memorial Library
