Rabbit Island: Works and Research 2010-2013
Rabbit Island is a 91 acre forested island in Lake Superior three miles east of the Keweenaw Peninsula. The island is composed of a native ecosystem standing upon solid bedrock and has never before been developed or subdivided. Bald eagles and great blue herons nest in the trees and the surrounding waters provide habitat for thriving lake trout and salmon populations. The majority of the island is held under a conservation easement granted by the Keweenaw Land Trust assuring this unique ecosystem will remain healthy in perpetuity.

The exhibition features works by artists who have spent time at Rabbit Island over the past three years. With work by Andrew Ranville, Charlotte X.C. Sullivan, Colin Curry, Cabin-Time3 (Sarah Darnell, Ryan Greaves, Geoffrey Holstad, Isabella Martin, Miles Mattison, Colin McCarty, Mary Rothlisberger), LoT Office for Architecture (Leonidas Trampoukis & Eleni Petaloti), David Buth/Summer Journeys/Christina Mrozik, David Drennen, Emily Julka, Helen Lovelee, Lucy Engleman, Rob Gorski, Sara Maynard, Tony Cenicola and Will Holman.

Both exhibitions run through Nov. 17.
