Marked by the end of the Cold War and the beginning of the Gulf War, 1991 was a tumultuous year. Mount Pinatubo erupted, devastating the Philippines, and Hurricane Bob wracked the East Coast of the United States. During the “Perfect Storm,” the Andrea Gail sank with all hands off the coast of Nova Scotia.
On a more positive note, current cultural staples like Starbucks Coffee and Nintendo were beginning to blossom. Madonna, Janet Jackson, and Whitney Houston topped the music charts. And in our corner of the world, the Channel Islands Maritime Museum opened to the public.
CIMMM’s “1991” exhibition examines and shares some of the incredible artworks that the Museum has the honor of housing. Many of the works have not been shown to the public in over two decades. We hope you will join us as we celebrate the incredible art of the Channel Islands Maritime Museum!
