    Mercernaris mercenaria, 2003

    Waterside clambake

    Mercernaris mercernaria are the hard shell clams that were used to make wampumpeake or "wampuma" used in Algonquin gift economies. Walsh's clambake introduces the reciprocal social obligations between peoples and groups who participated in the wampumpeake system, by bringing together local, artistic, and professional communities that intersect at Socrates Sculpture Park.
