The stunning underwater realm of fluorescent coral reefs and exotic sea creatures will overwhelm your senses, as the Hayden Planetarium’s dome is transformed by the renowned video installation artist Lynette Wallworth into an immersive view of ocean life few have ever witnessed. This unique event, presented in partnership with the American Museum of Natural History, takes audience members on a journey through the teeming community of coral reefs, an environment responsible for the health of the biosphere. Leading researchers share their insights on coral reefs prior to the world premiere of Wallworth’s film, Coral: ReKindling Venus, and set the stage for a remarkable evening of art and science. Tickets include cocktails and an optional after-hours tour of the museum’s “Bioluminescence” exhibit with Wallworth and the scientists.
