Abbe Museum Event

BAR HARBOR — The Abbe Museum will host an opening reception on Friday, Feb. 26 from 5 to 7 p.m. for its newest exhibit “Headline News: Wabanaki Sovereignty in the 21st Century” inspired by news headlines of the past 20 years.


Through a combination of actual news headlines and first person voice of Wabanaki leaders, the exhibit will explore eight topics frequently covered in the news. A wide array of objects will compliment the story to foster greater understanding of Wabanaki issues.

This groundbreaking exhibit is curated by Raney Bench in conjunction with consultation from members of the Micmac, Maliseet, Passamaquoddy and Penobscot tribes, and assistance from project team members Julia Clark and Jason Brown.

All are invited to the reception, which is free; it will be an opportunity to view the exhibit for the first time and to meet the curator, museum staff, and members of the Wabanaki tribes.

For more information, call 288.3519.
