The Abbe Museum's Brown Bag Lunch Series will return in January 2014. This popular program was introduced in 2011 to examine issues relevant to the major exhibit at that time, Headline News and to encourage open dialogue. The series was very well-received and has continued every year since, shifting to align with featured exhibits. This year, each Brown Bag Lunch will be led by a different artist from the upcoming exhibit Twisted Path III, Questions of Balance. The three lunchtime talks will focus on current environmental issues that Wabanaki people currently face, including the threat of the emerald ash borer beetle, control over water quality within tribal communities, and the complicated processes of fisheries management.
The 2014 series will begin on Thursday, January 16 from 12:00 - 1:00pm. Stay tuned for details on our calendar page. Future dates in the 2014 Brown Bag Lunch Series include Thursday, February 20 and Thursday, March 20, also from 12:00 - 1:00pm. Each program is free and open to the public and attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch to enjoy during the talk.
