In 2015 three members of the Artists’ Association of Nantucket came to the Nantucket Atheneum and explored the building  looking for inspiration among the library’s treasure trove of art and artifacts relating to Nantucket’s amazing history.

The three artists, Dani Henke, D. Clyde Myers and Russell Wieland, then created artwork inspired by what they found. As part of the project, three videographers captured their creativity and sat them down to discuss their process and the things that inspire them.

The artwork and films were on display at the Artist’s Association of Nantucket and at the Nantucket Atheneum in the Fall of 2015.
