On Saturday, 24th October, the weatherproof versions of the panels of the Friends’ 2020 temporary exhibition entitled ‘John Muir, Earth-Planet, Universe’ were installed in the wonderful outdoor venue that is the Dunbar Battery at Dunbar Harbour.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions it hasn’t been possible to showcase these panels in John Muir’s Birthplace over the summer season – as is normally the case for our temporary exhibitions – and we are very grateful for the help and support of the Dunbar Harbour Trust to allow us to use The Battery at Dunbar Harbour as a wonderful outdoor venue. There, we hope that many people will be able to visit, read and be inspired to get involved – all in a beautiful Covid-safe environment where John Muir himself explored during his boyhood in Dunbar!
“When I was a boy in Scotland I was fond of everything that was wild, and all my life I’ve been growing fonder and fonder of wild places and wild creatures” [John Muir, The Story of my Boyhood and Youth]
An official ‘virtual’ launch of this exhibition, and further news about the ‘What If?’ programme it has inspired, is planned for early November.
For those that can’t visit in person please see the online version of John Muir, Earth-Planet, Universe
