Art Exhibits

In celebration of its twentieth anniversary, the Aquarium will display rotating art exhibits on the second floor in the Great Hall.

The first art exhibit will feature five original pieces by Brian Kesinger, the Official Artist of the 20th Anniversary. Later in the year, the Aquarium will display an art quilt created by charter volunteer Leah Young commemorating the twentieth anniversary, winners of an art contest celebrating the anniversary presented by JetBlue, and artwork by participants in past Night Dive events.
