Cancelled: Kent Hood Memorial Core Sound Hunting Rig Competition and Superior Craftsmanship Competition

While we are very thankful that hurricane recovery progress is ongoing at the museum site, the Core Sound Museum and the Core Sound Decoy Carvers Guild have decided to cancel this event for 2019 as construction will be active in the Education Hall where portions of the Kent Hood Memorial Core Sound Hunting Rig Contest and the Superior Craftsmanship Competition are held. We will be back better than ever in 2020!

Join the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center community as we discuss our relationship with place, the role of change in our lives, and, if and how, it impacts our region and future. Bound by our saltwater connections, we’ll join our neighbors from Ocracoke, Hatteras, and the Chesapeake Bay in conversation about our day-to-day observations of change and how we might prepare for a more resilient tomorrow.

RISING...now through Sept 30th

“We are officially on view at the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center on Harkers Island. Though there’s not a formal opening reception for this iteration, it’s opening in tandem with Harm’s Way, a powerful exhibition of community perspectives of the storms that have shaped bankers over generations. There’s been a beautiful dialogue between the exhibitions already, and we’re excited for the potential for that to flourish as RISING travels back home to the communities from which it was born, created and serves. if you’re interested in discussing change on our coast, please join us the museum on August 14th for a community conversation.”
