Tide Pools in Art and Nature

11 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27

Third Floor, West Wing and Discovery Center

In-Person Event

Join Assistant Curator Rachel Boesenberg and Animal Care Manager Nicole Abeln for a facilitated conversation about tide pools. Boesenberg 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 looking as a way of connecting with nature and our surroundings. Following the exhibition tour, the group will 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.
