Wednesday, September 6
Free and open to the public
Three decades ago, the last Azorean whalemen set out from island shores in 40-foot boats to hunt whales. Today, the Azorean whaleboat lives on as a symbol of Portuguese-American heritage. Photographers Gemina Garland-Lewis and O. Louis Mazzatenta offer a “then and now” picture of Azorean whaling and the men who were a part of this unique world, in Azorean Whalemen: A Photographic Retrospective.
