SPECIAL COMMUNICATION FROM PALCUS
PALCUS is proud to invite you to a series of events in California to view the traveling exhibit "Legacy of Azorean Whalers"
TRANSCENDING AN OCEAN AND NATIONAL BORDERS, a cultural bond was established by whalers centuries ago. A bridge of whale ships linked the nine islands to the continental United States. This traveling exhibit introduces a larger, permanent exhibition at the New Bedford Whaling Museum designed to honor this legacy. The Azorean Whaleman Gallery chronicles the global contributions and impact of the Portuguese speaking world on American maritime history.
