The New Bedford Whaling Museum stewards one of the most important collections of maritime Dutch and Flemish paintings and prints outside of the Netherlands and many of these treasures are showcased in the exhibition "De Wind is Op! Climate, Culture and Innovation in Dutch Maritime Painting." Join Dr. Christina Connett Brophy, The Douglas and Cynthia Crocker Endowed Chair for the Chief Curator, to explore some of these exceptional Golden Age paintings through a fresh lens. During this Sailors' Series lecture, Dr. Connett will demonstrate how the artworks indicate that wind, climate, innovation, and the sea were drivers behind a uniquely Dutch identity. Sailors' Series lectures present a wide variety of experiences and adventures by individuals with lifelong commitments to sailing, boats, and the sea. The Sailors' Series is supported by Ruth and Hope Atkinson with additional support provided by Babbitt Steam Specialty and Burr Brothers Boats. The reception begins at 6 pm followed by the lecture at 6:30 pm.
