  • Port of Long Beach PHOTO Gallery Pop-up: The Port of Long Beach is more than an economic engine – it can be a source of surprising beauty and a feast for the creative eye. The Port’s PHOTO Program, in partnership with the Arts Council for Long Beach, hosts photographers of all skill levels on a behind-the-scenes photography harbor tour through the Green Port of the Future. The PHOTO Gallery pop-up will debut at Night Dive and be on display through May 17.


  • Open Conversations: Port of Long Beach PHOTO Gallery Pop-up and Maritime Photography Talk: Join the Arts Council and Port of Long Beach for an insightful talk on maritime photography at 8:00 p.m. in our Ocean Theater. Port of Long Beach photographer Tim Rue, who was featured in Bloomberg’s 2018 Year in Pictures, will talk about his adventures documenting maritime life from the air, land, and sea. Also hear from Arts Council Artist Registry photographer Eddie Davila, who uses photography to document the ocean and surrounding environment. Learn about the Port of Long Beach’s PHOTO Program and view the Port of Long Beach PHOTO Gallery pop-up collection, which features photos from the 2018 PHOTO Program collection.
  • Food Trucks: Grab a bite to eat from one of the food trucks parked on the front plaza of the Aquarium. Trucks include Breakers RoadShow, Chicken and Rice, Cocina Fresca by Mangia, Schully, SlaminSliders, and The Deli Doctor.
