Dark Water, Deep Treasures: The Art of Discovery (Feb. 5 – May 15, 2016)
Featuring 21 paintings from the private collection of oceanographic explorer, Robert D. Ballard, Ph.D. who discovered the wreck of the RMS Titanic in 1985. Dr. Ballard’s collection contains original works by National Geographic illustrators, Davis Meltzer and Robert Hynes; and California artist Ken Marschall whose paintings of Ballard’s discoveries have been used in numerous books. On display will be illustrations of deep water environments – hydrothermal vents, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, as well as paintings of the USS Yorktown, PT-109, USS Quincy and other WWII battleships along with several paintings of the RMS Titanic. This is the first time that these unique works of art have been on display to the public.
Beyond 300 Fathoms: Life at the Extremes (Feb. 5 – May 15, 2016)
This exhibit looks at the amazing creatures found in the deep sea, oftentimes living at extreme depths and harsh environments. These stunning photographs document that life, beautiful and brilliant, exists in eternal darkness hidden from human eyes.
