Museum offers free admission in February

cbmm_freeinfebruary17_1(ST MICHAELS, MD – November 28, 2016) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is offering free admission Monday through Friday this February, with the program offered through the generous support of Free in February sponsors Shore United Bank and Awful Arthur’s of St. Michaels, Md.

During February, CBMM guests will receive a discount card for 15% off all meals at Awful Arthur’s, which will be redeemable through March 15, 2017.

cbmm_freeinfebruary17_2Located along the Miles River in historic St. Michaels, Md., CBMM’s campus is a short walk or drive to area restaurants, shops, inns, hotels, and other attractions. Free admission covers access to CBMM’s numerous indoor and outdoor spaces, including the 1879 Hooper Strait Lighthouse, a working boatyard, and numerous permanent and changing exhibitions focused on the traditions, environment, and history of the entire Chesapeake Bay region.

cbmm_freeinfebruary17_ednalockwoodProgress on the log-hull restoration of the 1889 bugeye Edna E. Lockwood is now underway and in full public view in CBMM’s boatyard, and continues through 2018. The nine-log bugeye was built by John B. Harrison on Tilghman Island, Md. in 1889 and is the oldest of her kind still under sail. The oystering boat is a National Historic Landmark and was donated to CBMM in 1967 by John R. Kimberly.

“This winter, come and experience the Edna Lockwood restoration—our shipwrights and apprentices are now shaping the pine logs and it’s incredible to watch the transformation,” said CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “We also have a great number of exhibitions for all ages to enjoy, and this time of year offers clear, underwater views of oyster beds, and abundant waterfowl and wildlife along our living shoreline and quiet waterfront.”

cbmm_freeinfebruary17_3This winter, CBMM member and guests can enjoy the 17th National Exhibition of the American Society of Marine Artists’ Contemporary American Marine Art, which opens December 10 and runs through March 31, 2017. Co-exhibited at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, Md., Contemporary American Marine Art highlights the works of marine artists recognized as the best by ASMA’s juried competition, and includes more than 120 works of painting, sculpture, and scrimshaw, representing a wide variety of subject matter, medium, technique, and inspired vision.

Admission will be free weekdays in February for all CBMM guests. General admission is otherwise good for two consecutive days and is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students with ID, $6 for children 6-17, and free for CBMM members and children five and under. During the winter months, CBMM is open 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. seven days a week, except for Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. Inclement weather closings are announced at cbmm.org.

Established in 1965, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a world-class maritime museum dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and people of the entire Chesapeake Bay, with the values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission. Charitable gifts to the museum’s annual fund enable CBMM to educate and inspire the next generation of Chesapeake Bay stewards, and can be made online at cbmm.org/donate.

Meet: Brenda Wooden, Friends Board

BrendaWooden_e_crop_04.06.16Brenda Wooden was born and raised in Easton, MD. She attended Chesapeake College and is a graduate of Maryland Banking School. Brenda is the Assistant Vice President and Branch Manager of the Tred Avon Branch of Shore United Bank (formerly The Talbot Bank), where she has worked for more than 28 years.

Brenda first became involved at CBMM in May 2012, when she volunteered at Frederick Douglass Day, which was organized by the Frederick Douglass Honor Society in collaboration with CBMM. From that point on, Brenda became engaged in CBMM’s work and mission, and was soon volunteering at other events. She joined the Friends Board in 2015 for a three-year term, and includes volunteering at CBMM as part of her giving back to the community.

Founded in 2015, CBMM’s Friends Board is comprised of individuals who have their local and regional communities at heart, and helps guide CBMM in its endeavors to strengthen partnerships and develop new ones, for CBMM to be a real resource to diverse audiences.

Volunteering and giving back to the community have always been important to Brenda. Through her work on CBMM’s Friends Board, Brenda hopes to spread awareness about CBMM and lend a helping hand when needed. Her favorite aspect of the Chesapeake Bay is the feeling of home it encompasses. She greatly appreciates CBMM for preserving knowledge and teaching others how to safely interact with the Bay.

Brenda continues to live in Easton with her daughter and also volunteers her time with Soroptimist International of Talbot County, Historic Easton, The Talbot County Branch of the NAACP, Frederick Douglass Honor Society, Talbot County Housing Authority, Habitat for Humanity, Shore Leadership, and Bethel AME Church. In 2014, she was the NAACP Dorothy Webb Black Community Service Legacy Award recipient, which recognizes dedication and service to the local community in honor of Dorothy Webb Black, who was known for her civil rights and humanitarian efforts as well as being the founder of the Neighborhood Service Center in Easton. Brenda has also been twice recognized by the American Association of University Women for her service within the community.

We thank Brenda for her time and dedication to CBMM!
