San Francisco's Exploratorium Art Show - September 2018

I had a month to complete the artwork that emerged from my experience onboard the research vessel and prepare for an art show at the fabulous science museum, the Exploratorium. Schmidt Ocean Institute held an elegant reception on the pier overlooking the City where the work of the 6 Artists-At-Sea was displayed. Three of us were present to share our work and meet supporters and scientists involved with the work of the Falkor. SOI’s ongoing projects were presented, and future ones revealed for expanding ocean awareness and education in high tech ways. Wendy Schmidt is supporting some really cool work all over the world. And hats off to her organization for supporting the connection and importance of art and science working together!
