In July The Ahmanson Foundation made a significant pledge to the Aquarium’s Pacific Visions campaign, becoming one of the project’s major donors. With this pledge, The Ahmanson Foundation is affirming the Aquarium’s commitment to public education on matters that affect our planet.
The Pacific Visions wing, slated to open in late fall 2018, will help Aquarium visitors better understand the challenges our ocean faces and the opportunities it holds and imagine what the future of our planet could look like. This expansion will include a state-of-the-art interactive theater, a larger changing exhibit gallery, and an art gallery. When the Pacific Visions expansion is complete, the Aquarium will have the capacity to serve 2 million visitors annually.
To learn more about the Pacific Visions campaign and the new wing or to make a donation, visit aquariumofpacific.org/pacificvisions. The website features sections on the expansion’s architecture, programming, major donors, and places to ask questions and donate in support of the campaign. Aquarium visitors can also see a scale model of the expansion in the Aquarium’s Pacific Visions preview area near the front entrance.
