Please join us for a fascinating dive into a world where art meets underwater acoustics — the study of sound to learn about life in the ocean.
After spending a month aboard an ocean-going research vessel with UNH marine scientists, artist Lindsay Olson from Columbia College Chicago was inspired to create textile-based art that visually documents the underwater soundscape of sea life in the Atlantic Ocean.
On October 16th from noon – 1 p.m., the UNH Museum of Art and the UNH Center for Acoustics Research and Education (CARE) will co-host a seminar to showcase Olson’s new emboidered silk panels that illustrate the daily migration of zooplankton, the sound-enhancing layer in the ocean, phytoplankton, and the dramatic vocalizations of marine life gathered by underwater microphones. CARE’s Director, Dr. Jennifer Miksis-Olds, will provide a primer on ocean acoustics and will discuss her forthcoming science-art collaborations. 
This free public seminar will take place in the UNH Art Museum lecture hall (Room A218 in the Paul Creative Arts Center, 30 Academic Way, Durham, N.H.). Please join us at noon on Oct. 16th for this unique discussion, followed by the chance to meet the artist and see her silk panels up close.
