Abbe Museum Brown Bag Lunch Series 2014

Passamaquoddy basketmaker Gabe Frey will lead the March 20 talk.
The popular Brown Bag Lunch Series returns in 2014 with a later start. The first Brown Bag Lunch will be on Thursday, February 20 - details are still forming and the speaker will be named soon. Future Brown Bag Lunches will take place on Thursday, March 20 and Thursday, April 17. The March talk will be given by Gabe Frey, Penobscot basketmaker and April's talk will feature Gina Brooks, Maliseet artist. Please note, there will not be a Brown Bag Lunch this Thursday, January 16.

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 II, Questions of Balance. The three lunchtime talks will focus on current environmental issues that Wabanaki people face.
