Maritime Melange was inspired by New Brunswick's coastlines and the International Sculpture Symposium that was hosted by Sculpture Saint John. The award-winning poem is illustrated by the photography of Shannon Williams as it appears in print for the first time. Previously, it was set to music and performed by the New Brunswick Symphony Orchestra at the 2016 Sculpture Symposium in Saint John, NB.
A map showing the locations of the sculptures is included.
