Live Sculpture Demonstration in Shark Lagoon

Watch as artist Victor Douieb dives in the large shark exhibit in Shark Lagoon, then creates a shark sculpture in a live demonstration. Sharks: The Beauty of the Ocean Predator, an exhibit of Douieb’s shark sculptures, will be on display at the Aquarium March 5 through May 5, 2013.

Douieb and underwater cinematographer Richard Theiss will also present three lectures in conjunction with the exhibit on March 5, 7, and 13. Douieb dives with sharks to gain an understanding of their anatomy, movement, and habitat. His works originate in clay, are cast in bronze, and finished with a patina or stainless steel. He donates a percentage of proceeds from the sale of his artwork to conservation organizations.
