A Modern Version of American Scrimshaw

with Erwin Wunderlich

After a few months off due to renovations, Brown Bag Lunches are back in February!

Join us at the museum to learn about scrimshaw illustrations from Dr. Erwin Wunderlich. Atlantic whalers first introduced scrimshaw in the late 1700s when idle sailors would etch into whale’s teeth, typically depicting man-versus-sea struggles. Wunderlich will discuss scrimshaw’s origins and his methods for reproducing this traditional artform.

Attendance is free and open to the public. Masks are mandatory. Seating is first come, first served with a limit of 30 people. This program is wheelchair accessible. We do not serve lunch, so feel free to bring your own lunch.


Watch this program remotely via our Twitch channel.
