Join us at Laguna Art Museum this Earth Day April 22nd from 6-9pm for an evening dedicated to protecting whales in their natural environment. Attendees will hear from special guests including Founder of Project O and President of OneWhale Rich German, Marine Mammal Scientist and OneWhale Scientific Advisor Dr. Diana Reiss, OneWhale Director of Policy Courtney Vail, and Filmmaker Regina Crosby who will be previewing her upcoming documentary SpyWhale.
Guests will also be the first to preview a portion of the film installation The Sea Around Us with artist Rebeca Méndez. The Sea Around Us is the featured exhibition for Laguna Art Museum’s 10th annual Art & Nature project that brings together poetic storytelling through footage of individuals and sea life interacting with the ocean interspersed with imagery based on current scientific work being conducted on the sea floor between Southern California and Catalina Island where sea life is being exposed to illegal chemical dumping of DDT.
Ticket sales and donations benefit both OneWhale and Laguna Art Museum’s 2022 Art & Nature. Food and beverage included with ticket.
Tickets: $120 per person
