Gallery Talk: Views Through a Microscope with Jenny Jacox, Janai Southworth, and Friends
Sat. November 5, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm This event has passed
Look through a microscope into a drop of water drawn from the edge of Bolinas Lagoon, and a profusion of jewel-like life forms is revealed. Plankton drifts through the ocean; the plant-like phytoplankton create some 50% of the world’s oxygen, and zooplankton, microscopic animals, include the larvae form of crabs, barnacles, jellyfish, mussels, and more. By setting up microscopes, some attached to larger screens, Jenny Jacox (Ph.D., Ocean Sciences) and artist/naturalist Janai Southworth will give us a fascinating window into this tiny world. Their breadth of knowledge is formidable, and they’ve created an atmosphere of discovery, fellowship, wonder, and appreciation of all things microscopic. This free event will fascinate people of all ages!
