Whaling history two ways at Lyman Allyn

Published September 17. 2013 4:00AM

If Procol Harum lived in New London and wrote songs about the Lyman Allyn Art Museum, perhaps they'd have composed a tune called "Whaling Exhibitions" instead of "Whaling Stories." Y'see, two whaling-centric shows, "Greasy Luck: The Whaling World of the Charles W. Morgan" and "Milloff's Melvielle: An Artist Renders the Whale," open on Saturday with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The former is designed to demonstrate how whaling left its mark on Connecticut. The latter features 25 years of Mark Milloff's works inspired by Melville's Moby Dick. (His "Stripping the Whale" is shown above). "Greasy Luck" runs through the Spring 2014, academic year; "Milloff's Melville" runs through June 5, 2014. Lyman Allyn Art Museum, 625 Williams St., New London. Hours 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tues.-Sat., 1-5 p.m. Sun.; (860) 443-2545, lymanallyn.org.
