With its newest exhibition SeaChange, Mystic Seaport hosts a fascinating look at the concept of transformation and the ever-present connection we all share with the sea. A Chinese bed, richly carved and surrounded by questions about its history and ocean journey from China to Rhode Island, is one of the striking and unexpected objects to appear in the, SeaChange exhibition.
SeaChange is organized around pieces that explore this theme and delve deeply into the materials, technology, and human threads that connect us all. This intricate Chinese bed is only one of the stunning pieces from deep within the Museum’s rich collections.
SeaChange is now open in the Thompson Exhibition Building.
