Riverwalk: Swimming Upstream, 25 vibrant prints will be installed along Cobbossee Stream April 27-June 1.

Artist, Lisa Link will bring her public art project to the Harrison Avenue Nature Trail in Gardiner for the spring run of alewives on Cobbossee Stream. These 25 prints celebrate rivers, restoration and environmental advocacy in Maine.

Those who wish can stroll Gardiner’s newest trail and be inspired by the story and images of local people and witness the power of migration and the vitality it brings to a stream and river community.

Link was inspired by people, past and present, who worked to improve conditions for the Kennebec and other rivers in Maine and surrounding communities. She wanted to celebrate their stories and spark discussion of current environmental concerns. Shw photographed the river, interviewed people, and then chose quotes from those conversations and emails to highlight issues surrounding the clean-up of Maine’s rivers and streams.

These prints were first exhibited from June 2 – Sept. 30, 2018, in Waterville at the Quarry Road Trails, funded by Waterville Creates!
