Numerous species of ducks and other local waterfowl are central to the Lowcountry’s historic culture, their meat and feathers filling specific desires from dining tables to fashion statements, and even indigenous sacred ceremonies. Even hunting them has become somewhat of an art form. Handcrafted decoys and calls have themselves become prized possessions, as have the elegant shotguns used in conjunction with them.
Join Chief Curator Grahame Long for a conversation on Feather and Flock: Waterfowling in South Carolina, a special exhibition in cooperation with the 2017 Southeastern Wildlife Expo, and with generous sponsorship from the Charleston Mercury.
Conversations with a Curator allows visitors a chance to have an intimate look at an exhibit in The Charleston Museum, hear stories, ask questions and spark conversations.
