Cultural Center of Cape Cod to Host Photo Exhibit Depicting Thoreau’s Legacy

SOUTH YARMOUTH – The Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth will host a photographic exhibit next month depicting the legacy of Henry David Thoreau.

“Thoreau, The Maine Woods to Cape Cod: A Journey in Photographs” by Scot Miller will run from October 3 through 29.

The exhibit, which is sponsored by the Association to Preserve Cape Cod, captures the scenery, as it exists today, of Thoreau’s famous walking trips in the mid-1800s along the shores of Cape Cod and his explorations of Maine’s interior.

A free opening reception for the exhibit is Friday, October 5 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Two other Thoreau themed events will coincide with the exhibit.

Boston University biologist and author Dr. Richard Primack will discuss his book, “Walden Warming: Change Comes to Thoreau’s Woods,” on Thursday, October 11 at 7 p.m.

And a unique collaboration between the Cape Cod National Seashore and Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument in Maine will discuss the different characteristics and surprising similarities of the two areas that factored prominently in Thoreau’s travels. The event is October 18 at 7 p.m.

The events are at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod and registration is requested. To register visit
