Free admission | Wheelchair accessible


April 30, 5 pm, The Spawning Response, Brad Chase, Division of Marine Fisheries and Herring Video

Working with scientists and GIS specialists, the artist has created a 3D computer model of the harbor and tidal rivers, showing the factors that trigger the spawning response of herring, smelt, and shad. The public exhibition includes banners marking the passage of fish upstream are installed and large floating archetypal fish forms at the falls at Lower Millis. At night, images of schooling fish are projected on the water vapor from the falls of the Neponset River, giving a ghostly echo of the pre-colonial migration of the anadromous fish. The work documents the interface of the natural, cultural and industrial worlds and evokes the memory of the anadromous fish return to their natal streams to spawn. Centuries later, fish still return to the site unable to swim upstream.

The exhibit can be viewed from the newly renovated 17th century Adams Street stone bridge, the site of the first industrial dam built across a wild river in the New World.
