“Homage to the Neponset,” a new photography exhibit by Dorchester resident David J. Stokle that celebrates the history and beauty of the Neponset River and its newly opened Greenway extension, will be on display at the Forbes House Museum in Milton starting this Sat., Nov. 30. 

The exhibit’s opening events, free and open to the public, will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., coinciding with the museum’s annual Lower Mills Holiday Stroll Open House.

Photographs in the display will be for sale, with proceeds benefiting the Neponset River Watershed Association and the Forbes House Museum.

A press release for the event included the following description of the exhibit: “More than a catalog of the river’s splendor, Stokle’s images evoke a pedestrian’s experience along the greenway through all seasons of the year, in all weather conditions, and in varying moods from the tranquil solitude of a lone walker braving a winter night, to an impressionistic symphony of warm Fall colors that surround a Blue Heron standing over his momentary home on a rock protruding from the water.”

On Sept. 26, the Riverway was recognized by the American Planning Association as one of the “six great public spaces of 2019.”

The Forbes House Museum is located at 215 Adams St. in Milton. Guests may also view the exhibit during regular museum tour hours: Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 11 a.m. or 2 p.m. The exhibit will remain on display until Feb. 22, 2020.
