Miniature Decoys Exhibit

Cape Ann Museum presents exhibit of miniature decoys

The Cape Ann Museum presents a special exhibit of miniature decoys by wildfowl decoy carver Bob Brophy on Saturday, January 31 from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. This exhibit is offered in conjunction with the Cape Ann Winter Birding Weekend organized by the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce and Mass Audubon.

These decoys were inspired by the annual Massachusetts Waterfowl Stamp Competition, a program designed to help fund the acquisition and protection of wetland areas in the region through the creation of a yearly stamp that celebrates the art of decoy carving. Also on view, is the Museum’s collection of historic and contemporary decoys.
