Dioramas – also known as shadowboxes – are an art form in which assemblages of objects depict a scene, tell a story, or express an idea or emotion. The Penobscot Marine Museum will teach the art and craft of shadowbox construction in a workshop at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland. The program is inspired by the work of Anne-Emmanuelle Marpeau, a French diorama artist whose work is on display at Dowling Walsh Gallery, also in Rockland. Marpeau is renowned for her meticulously-crafted dioramas that depict the history and folklore of Maine islands and coastal communities.
