After-Hours Sip & Create with Artist Dwight HwangAfter Five, Celebrations, Demonstrations, Gallery Talks & Tours, Workshops
Thursday, June 8, 2023, 6:30 – 8:30pm EDT
Gyotaku, or fish rubbing, is a traditional form of Japanese art that began over 100 years ago from a technique fishermen used to record the size of their catch. For renowned artist Dwight Hwang, embracing this classical art in today’s modern time is a way to give “life” to the sea and bear emotive witness to the power and beauty of the Pacific Ocean, and the deep and lasting environmental changes that are occurring.
Join the National Museum of Natural History after-hours on World Ocean Day for a conversation and printing demo with Dwight Hwang, explore the Sant Ocean Hall, and create Gyotaku-inspired art to deepen your own ocean connections.
This is a 21+ event. Your $30 ticket includes:
- 2 drinks and light snacks
- Access to Sant Ocean Hall after hours
