Stuck in Vermont: Celebrating David Macaulay’s Work at the Champlain Mill in Winooski 

Episode 628

It’s hard to imagine Winooski without thinking of the gigantic mills that line the Winooski River and contain so much history and life. A new exhibit at the Heritage Winooski Mill Museum in the Champlain Mill celebrates this local treasure with original illustrations from David Macaulay’s 1983 book, MILL. Although the book is about a fictional mill town, residents will probably see architectural details that look familiar. Eva took a walk around the mills with David in October to learn more about his artistic process and his appreciation of these historic mill structures. You can take a similar adventure using this map.

The exhibit is part of "2020 Vision: Reflecting on a World-Changing Year," a statewide exhibition initiative of the Vermont Curators Group that includes 48 spots across the state. This show is open until March 12; tickets are free but need to be reserved ahead of time.

Please note: Portions of this video were filmed in October for a promotional video featuring Macaulay.
