BELFAST’S WATERFRONT: THEN & NOW

BELFAST’S WATERFRONT: THEN & NOW
May 22 – July 17 in the Clifford & Corridor Galleries

Opening Reception: Friday, May 22 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM

At the center of Belfast’s long and colorful history is its dynamic waterfront. From ship building and cod fishing to chicken, sardine and potato processing, Belfast’s shoreline has transformed with the changing tides of industry. Today, we enjoy public access and recreation opportunities alongside a working shipyard. This exhibition reveals how Belfast’s identity has evolved in tandem with the hustle of its harbor. In collaboration with the Penobscot Marine Museum and the Belfast Historical Society, the show includes historic as well as contemporary photographs — images that highlight the commerce, recreation and scenic beauty of Belfast’s rich maritime history.
