What's It All About?

Dr. Sylvia Earle, the National Geographic Society Explorer in Residence, will give this year’s Art & Nature Keynote Lecture at the Art & Nature 10th Anniversary Celebration from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Following the keynote lecture, the museum will reveal The Sea Around Us by artist Rebeca Méndez and welcome opening night guests to experience the immersive exhibit at 7:00 p.m.

Along with light bites and libations, the event will give guests the opportunity to get a first look at select Art & Nature exhibitions, to meet the artists behind this year’s festival and to help the museum raise much needed funds for future programs and exhibitions. LAM’s partnership with MacGillivray Freeman Films and Coast Film Festival, Five Summer Stories: The Exhibition, will also debut during the anniversary celebration.
