EXHIBITION MODEL


This exhibit takes the viewer through many themes surrounding lobsters in the United States, including methods of catching lobsters, the Lobster War / Gray Zone War between the US and Canada, a typical lobster’s habitat, the rise of lobsters from pests in the early colonial period to delicacy in modern America, common recipes for lobster dishes, and to conclude the exhibit, a restaurant that allows visitors to enjoy lobsters after learning about them. As visitors move through the exhibit, the color slowly turns to red, as if the lobster they’re wandering in is being cooked.
