"University of Southern Maine alumnus Justin Levesque has been invited to participate in The Arctic Circle 2017; an art and science expedition to the High Arctic, June 10th to June 28th, 2017.
Artist and scientist led, The Arctic Circle is an annual expeditionary residency program. The Arctic Circle brings together international artists of all disciplines, scientists, architects and educators who collectively explore remote and fascinating destinations aboard a sailing vessel.
A 2010 graduate with a Bachelor of Fine Art in photography, Levesque will continue his work documenting the Arctic and exploring its growing connections with the state of Maine after completing a week-plus long journey aboard a container ship in 2015. He will spend more than two weeks aboard a tall ship in the international territory of Svalbard, just 10 degrees from the North Pole.
