THE SARDINE MUSEUM and HERRING HALL OF FAME
Grand Manan Island, Canada
de Introduction by Kate Wallace Photographs by Peter Cunningham
In 1996, Michael Zimmer, "A Stranger from Away", appeared in Seal Cove, Grand Manan, NB, Canada. He became fascinated by a stand of abandoned smoke houses, bought them, and founded "The Sardine Museum and Herring Hall of Fame". The museum reflects Michael's intellect and sensibility, and 150 years of Grand Manan tradition and craft, embodied by Harvey Bleumortier, the previous owner who was too busy smoking herring to ever think that he was creating objects clever and beautiful enough to be part of a museum.
