The Higner Maritime Collection: Justin Higner
1:00 PM
Castellani Art Museum
Description:
The Higner Maritime Collection represents 25 years of ship building by Justin Higner. This exhibition celebrates Justin Higner's evolution of his model-building techniques and inventive, pseudo-historical nautical allegories.

The exhibition will feature models of cargo ships, cruise ships, salvages, shipwrecks, tankers, and tenders (or dinghies), as well as ships re-purposed as convention centers, hotels, and museums. Drawn from a collection centered on the artist's fictional maritime settings, these works are accompanied by narratives that chronicle not only the vessels' imagined histories, but also the interactions and relationships between the various builders and owners that populate the artist's mythological world.

The Higner Maritime Collection is co-curated by Michael J. Beam, Curator of Exhibitions and Special Projects, and Edward Millar, Curator of Folk Arts.
