 Door County Maritime Museum Honors Steve Reinke with Maritime Photography Exhibit

On January 13, 2018, the Door County Maritime Museum will open a temporary exhibit featuring maritime photography from Steve Reinke. Reinke passed away in January 2017 after years of dedicated service photographing Door County’s maritime scenes. This exhibit will feature some of his work and showcase it for other maritime enthusiasts to enjoy.

Reinke was a good friend to the Door County Maritime Museum. In his retirement he volunteered his time and talent capturing photos of all things maritime and shared his work with the museum. His photographs have been instrumental in recording the recent history and events in our community and have become an integral part of preserving Door County’s maritime history.

To honor his talent in photography, the Door County Maritime Museum will hold an exhibition highlighting some of his maritime-focused pieces. The Door County Maritime Museum would like to invite the public to share in their appreciation of Steve, his amazing work, and what he called “his once-in-a-lifetime adventure.”

A museum members-only opening reception will be held on Friday, January 12, 2018, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. From January 13, 2018, through October 21, 2018, the exhibit will be open to the public at the Door County Maritime Museum at 120 N Madison Avenue, Sturgeon Bay. The museum is open from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. daily, January through March.
