Exhibition Opening: Dove Tales

May 26 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum for a public reception to celebrate the opening of its newest exhibition, Dove Tales. Open through Dec. 31, 2022, Dove Tales explores the sources that reveal the history, construction, and cultural significance of Maryland Dove. From the tercentenary representation to the 1970s and current iteration, the vessels have served as important interpretive tools, connecting Marylanders to the far-reaching impacts of 17th century colonization, and with boatbuilding as a living historical tradition in the Chesapeake region.
