CELESTIAL SEAFARERS

Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum will mark its inaugural “Maritime Day Celebration” with a light and sound festival entitled “Celestial Seafarers” to be held on May 22 and May 23 featuring local artists. The event is in celebration of National Maritime Day, a day of honor that marks the launch of the Steamship Savannah from Savannah in 1819. It was the first ever transoceanic voyage under sail and steam power.

 

This two-day festival will feature artists’ installations throughout the gardens as well as inside the Scarbrough House. Sail away with us and immerse yourself in a unique experience from the moment you enter the gardens to when you step inside the museum!

 

Artists included are Marcus Kenney, Todd Schroeder, Abby Portner, Greg Finger, Will Penny, Kevin Kirkwood, and more.
