Beyond the Edge of the Sea Traveling Art Exhibition

‘Beyond the Edge of the Sea’ is an exhibition of the work of scientific illustrator Karen Jacobsen. She has accompanied Dr. Cindy Lee Van Dover of Duke University in the deep-sea submersible Alvin numerous times to locations across the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, exploring hydrothermal vent ecosystems. This unique collaboration has yielded a vast collection of extraordinary drawings and paintings. The traveling exhibition highlights five newly commissioned pieces, and features over 70 works selected from Jacobsen’s sketchbooks.

NAI supported the final production of the exhibition, which premiered at the Muscarelle Museum of Art at the College of William and Mary during the Fall of 2008. NAI also provided funds to create educational materials for exhibit visitors, especially teachers and students. The exhibition is available for installation at other venues for a fee of $15K (+shipping). If you’re interested in pursuing this opportunity at a venue near you, please contact Daniella Scalice at [email protected].
