Tide Pools in Art & Nature

11 a.m. Tuesday, June 4

Third Floor, West Wing & Discovery Center

In-Person Event

Join Anchorage Museum Assistant Curator Rachel Boesenberg and Animal Care Manager Nicole Abeln as they facilitate a conversation about tide pools. Rachel will give a brief tour of the exhibition How to Survive, with a focus on Ellie Schmidt’s installation the tide pool room, which encourages close observation as a way of connecting with nature and our surroundings. Following the tour, visit the intertidal tank in the Discovery Center to observe animals found along Alaska’s coastline. What initially looks like a quiet tank is in fact teeming with life, and Nicole will help visitors identify the animals, share information about where they were collected and why, and answer questions.
Meet on the third floor elevator lobby. Included with admission.
