“We might climb a tree, at least.” H. D. Thoreau Exhibition

S.B. Walker, Untitled (Target  Bag) from the Walden Woods Project

The impetus of this exhibition is the celebration of the bicentennial of the birth of Henry David Thoreau 1817 - 1862.  The Maine Museum of Photographic Arts is proud to collaborate with Adam Tuchinsky (dean) and Libby Bishoff (Director of the Center for Collaboration and Development, as well as Associate Professor of History) of the University of Southern Maine by hosting several events this year to pay tribute to Thoreau.  For our part, director Denise Froehlich of MMPA commemorates the ideas and writings of this visionary leader with an exhibition and a reissue of H. D. Thoreau’s Walking, published by Tilbury House Publishers in Thomaston, Maine.
