NW Maritime Center Science Campers

“Junior Discoverers” from the Maritime Center just down Water Street from the gallery, came to experience the “Sea Rites” exhibit last week. The 8 young people were avid and curious and delighted to be able to handle the plankton sculpture, sketch organisms and then create a graffiti mural on the gallery windows.

Anna and I enjoyed their enthusiasm and knowledge about the ocean and its fragile inhabitants.

Sadly, the window washers came the following day. Glorious display while it lasted!
