Behind the Scenes:  Figureheads and Ship Carvings

Since ancient times and across cultures, decorations have adorned the bows of boats and ships, from the Nile and the Mediterranean to the far North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.  Mystic Seaport Museum recently opened a reimagined exhibit showcasing a selection of the Museum's vast collection of these amazing artifacts.  Because of space limitations, 45 figureheads and dozens of other maritime carvings will remain in the Museum's vaults.


Join us for a virtual behind-the-scenes tour into the Mystic Seaport Museum's collections vault with Katherine Hijar, Luce Project Assistant Curator, as she highlights a selection of the Museum's figureheads and discusses the history and art of these fascinating maritime artifacts.


Another event will be held on 2/3/2021. Please register separately.
