River Story Day

July 26, 2018, 11:00 AM6:00 PM

 
11:00-6:00 p.m. Common Street Arts and artist Maggie Libby invite viewers to interact with Libby’s public art installation, River Stories, which celebrates the Kennebec River as a natural resource and as a central element for industry and recreation in Central Maine. As part of the River Stories project, Libby asks participants to erase portions of her charcoal drawings that explore the Kennebec River history, ecology, and beauty with pieces of Hathaway shirts. 
 
From 4:00-6:00 p.m. join roundtable discussion with artist Maggie Libby, and special guests David Calder and James E. Francis Sr. Francis is a Tribal Historian for the Penobscot Nation. David Calder, a Canaan singer-songwriter, worked as a river driver from 1966 until the last log drive along the Kennebec in 1976. Calder was inspired to write numerous songs, which he will perform during this event.
 
This conversation is an opportunity to share personal stories, memories, experiences, and future hopes of and for the Kennebec River. All welcome.
