Opening June 12, 2015
June 12 through September 7, 2015
at the Museum in the John and Peggy Maximus Gallery
In collaboration with World Oceans Day and other marine themed Museum exhibits, the Maximus Gallery will display images of undersea life. We will be drawing on our library collections of bound expedition works.
Fish and crustacean prints from the famous HMS Challenger oceanographic expedition of 1872-1876 will be shown. Specimens were collected from different depths of water all over the world and the ocean floor mapped for the first time proving that life existed on the deep sea bed.
