“Diving into Diversity through Specimens in Fish Collections” with Dr. Norma J. Salcedo, Ichthyologist & Collections Advocate College of Charleston & Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, Lima-Peru AND “Fish Pop Prints” with local artist Marielena Martinez.

Research indicates we are on the brink of the next mass extinction. How do scientists know this? One of the most valuable resources for evolutionary biology and ecology is museum collections. Dr. Norma Salcedo is a biologist who specializes in the development and use of museum collections to promote a better understanding of biodiversity. Here is your chance to view up close some of the 500,000 unique specimens of larval, juvenile and adult fish and invertebrates housed at the Grice Marine Lab collection. And discover the insights and value each individual specimen provides. Then dive into pop art with Marilena Martinez, who will inspire us with some Andy Warhol history to help you create your own pop art fish reproductions using vibrant colors and recycled-styrofoam.

$15 LEARN, CREATE & TAKE HOME ORIGINAL ART. Students FREE and Educator discount. Great food and happy hour specials, including $1/pint will be donated by Palmetto Brewery to help support more Community Science + Art. This is meant to be a fun, informal, community event for adults & youths. Drop-ins welcome, but get your tickets today to avoid lines and help us plan. Free Parking!
