The Great Marsh was a creative catalyst for renowned American artists Fitz Henry Lane (1804-1865) and Martin Johnson Heade (1819-1904). This panel discussion, presented on the first day of a special spotlight exhibit of work by Lane and Heade, will explore the Great Marsh’s cultural and environmental significance. Also on display will be photographs of the marshes of Cape Ann taken by Martha Hale Harvey (1863-1949) and printed by Guggenheim fellowship recipient Anne Rearick.
