Wednesday, April 5 at 7:00 pm -- The Assateague Island Ponies have roamed the Assateague Island National Seashore since the 1700's. Since 1965, the US Parks Service has managed a herd of 100-200 wild ponies on the island which is 38 miles long. Artist Rob Franco has visited the Maryland many times over the past 17 years. In this presentation, he shares his love of the Assateague Island wild ponies and the island itself, including items he and his wife have found on the shore from the hundreds of shipwrecks that have occurred on the Eastern seashore since the 1600's.
This presentation is being held in conjunction with Mr. Franco's art exhibition that will be on display in the Clemens gallery from April 1- April 27th.
