Delve into a world where ocean animals are suited with armor. Then, embark on a virtual voyage around our ocean planet. Starting September 15, the public will be able to explore the Ocean Armor art exhibition and can learn how to protect marine life through the Ocean in Motion multimedia program at the Aquarium of the Pacific. The Aquarium will be the first to host Surfrider Foundation’s inaugural Ocean Armor exhibit for two months to use art to educate visitors and raise awareness about issues affecting the world’s coastlines. Ocean in Motion is an ongoing program that uses the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration’s Science on a Sphere® technology and is located in the Aquarium’s Ocean Science Center. This show connects ocean health to human health from a global perspective, using a combination of music, video, narration, and data.
