Lecture: Ray Troll and Kirk Johnson
7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15
Prepare to look at the world in a whole new way – through the eyes of a walrus-and ammonite-obsessed scientist and an artist with a fondness for cheeseburgers, ratfish and trilobites – in this talk by Alaska artist Ray Troll and paleontologist Kirk Johnson, director of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. The two logged more than 10,000 miles and 250 days traveling the North American coast in search of fossils for the Cruisin’ the Fossil Coastline exhibit. Join them for a discussion about their fossil collecting journeys and the art and science behind the exhibition. Included with admission.
