The Horseshoe Crab: Against All Odds Exhibit

June 12 - July 7

Horseshoe crab on sand

 Southeastern Massachusetts Pine Barrens Alliance (SEMPBA) presents “The Horseshoe Crab: Against All Odds” exhibition. Horseshoe crabs have existed for more than 400 million years, surviving five mass extinctions, yet today they are threatened worldwide due to overfishing and loss of spawning habitat. Their blue blood contains an ingredient essential for biomedical testing. Through 2D and 3D art, interpretive panels, and guest speakers, this exhibition highlights the lifecycle and ecological importance of horseshoe crabs in the web of life and explores how human exploitation is threatening these sentient creatures once so abundant. 

The exhibition features works in a variety of media including fine art, photography, printmaking, glass, ceramics, textiles, sculpture, jewelry, etc.
