Beaty Nocturnal: Making Wave[form]s
Thursday, August 16 | 5:00 - 8:30pm
We are pleased to welcome special guests from Emily Carr University of Art + Design at this month’s Nocturnal!

Explore the value of our local waterways at Making Wave[form]s, the premiere screening of short videos by students from the Emily Carr University of Art + Design created through a class offered this summer in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation and in collaboration with the Native Education College. This screening event will be intermixed with interactive presentations led by the artists and public dialogue around the importance of healthy waterways. The event will include an exhibit of photographs by local knowledge keepers that participated in the projects, as well as student artwork on the theme of water.

As always, admission to our Nocturnal evenings will be by donation between 5:00pm and 8:30pm. This special screening will start at 5:30pm in our auditorium, a museum tour will be available at 7:00pm starting under the whale, and hands-on activities will be available throughout the museum all evening.
Closing soon!
Life: As We've Known It

On until August 19, 2018
Reflect on the beauty and fragility of life through intimate photographic portraits of the flora, fauna, and fossils in our museum.

There is a distinct eeriness looking at an image from this series by David Ellingsen. The dark glow suspending each subject is as compelling as it is unnatural. How will these photographs be viewed by our descendants and what will remain of these species, or their human viewers? As our planet enters another mass extinction period, only the sixth in its 4.5 billion year history, the photographs in Life: As We’ve Known It respond to this anthropogenic event of unprecedented scale.

David Ellingsen is a Canadian photographer and conservation artist creating images of site-specific installations, landscapes and object studies that speak to the natural world and Man’s impact upon it.
