On View Through Fall 2022
This 2-year exhibition celebrates the deep cultural significance of whales for the Shinnecock people.
For thousands of years, the Shinnecock have regarded and continue to regard whales as sacred creatures that provide sustenance and well-being for people. To contextualize, explore, and understand this undertold history and living culture, The Whaling Museum is exhibiting “Shinnecock Artists & Long Island’s First Whalers,” using contemporary Shinnecock art as a gateway to enhance the public’s understanding of maritime heritage of the Shinnecock, past and present.
Artwork from contemporary Shinnecock artists David Martine and Jeremy Dennis is on view, as well as Tecumseh Ceaser.
Special programming exploring the Shinnecock experience runs through 2022.
