Art Meets Science Café – The Making of Art of Acadia

Date: Monday Aug 15, 2016
Time: 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Art writer Carl Little will talk about the making of his new book, Art of Acadia, written with his brother, David.

Published in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the founding of Acadia National Park, the Littles’ book highlights the artists who have been inspired by the landscape of greater Mount Desert Island, including the Cranberry Isles and Schoodic Point, from the early 19th century to today. Little will offer a sampling of images from the book.

Art Meets Science Cafés are a program of the MDI Biological Laboratory and free of charge. The public is invited to participate in discussion and enjoy refreshments.

The 2016 exhibit “A Fresh Field of Life: Artists, Naturalists and the Vision for Acadia,” will open at 4:15 PM for viewing before the event.

Included in the exhibit is an oil painting by artist Alexandra Tyng called “Jet Streams,” that is reproduced on the cover of Art of Acadia. The painting is a dramatic aerial portrait of the eastern peninsula of Mount Desert Island looking north over Northeast Harbor and Seal Harbor toward Jordan Pond and beyond.
