Be the first to see – and obtain – the 2019 Heritage Oyster Tin!

As part of the Smithsonian traveling Water/Ways exhibit at the Dorchester Center for the Arts, Hoopers Island Oyster Co. will debut their third Heritage Tin, a limited edition oyster can collectible. Join Ricky Fitzhugh and Lesley Giles as they unveil “Sunrise on Fishing Bay,} the featured art on the 2019 tin celebrating Dorchester County watermen. Rendered in vibrant shades of crimson, salmon and gold, the original art captures the tradition of hand tonging for oysters as the sun rises over Hoopers Island’s iconic lighthouse.

They will be serving samples of their new “Mermaid Kiss” oyster now available at the Hoopers’ seasonal retail store in Cambridge, and there will be music by Colby Sard. Download the flyer here.
