The National Archaeological Museum Aruba cordially invites everybody to come and enjoy a very special Family Sunday with a ‘performance’, music and workshop. At this moment the Archaeological Museum is preparing another sublime exhibition for the public to enjoy. On Sunday the 16th of September at 10am, the exhibition ‘I’m ALIVE, Boc’i Brik’ will be opened to the public with an innovative presentation.
The exhibition “I’M, ALIVE, Boc’iBrik’ is based on information of the scientific publication of the Archaeological Museum ‘Ceque no.2, A Sailor’s Grave at Boc’Brik/ Puente’. The exhibition tells the story of a sailboat, a so-called brig, that sank in front of the Northeast coast of Aruba in the year 1886 which left only one surviving crewmember. The place Boc’i Brik got it’s name from the locals many years ago, but today this is unknown to most. Boc’i Brik ‘relived’ when investigators of the Archaeological Museum conducted a salvage excavation in 2007 to dig out the bones of one of the crewmembers who was buried at this site.
The opening of this new temporary exhibit will be in the sphere of a Family Sunday and includes the thematic and free workshop ‘Creating Art with Driftwood’ under the guidance of artist Miriam d’Lisle. The exhibition will be open to the public for three months starting the 16th of September and will be open from Tuesday to Friday from 10 am until 5 pm and on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am till 2 pm.
Come all, on Sunday the16th of September, at 10 am, at the Archaeological Museum at Schelpstraat 42, navigate the new exhibition together with your family and friends and leave your ‘message in a bottle’ behind!
