Aquarium Launching Lectures, Display on Sharks

The Aquarium of the Pacific hosts artist Victor Douieb's shark sculptures and schedules three lectures on the ocean's most feared but threatened predators.

Artist Victor Douieb and cinematographer Richard Theiss share their experiences documenting sharks and highlighting the need for conservation in a series of lectures beginning March 5 at the Aquarium of the Pacific.

The lectures complement an exhibit of Douieb's shark scultures entitled "Sharks: The Beauty of the Ocean Predator" that will be on display through May 5, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

The lectures, all from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., are scheduled on Tuesday, March 5; Thursday, March 7; and Wednesday, March 13.

Douieb draws his inspiration for his sculptures from his experiences as a diver, the aquarium said in a news release. A portion of the sales of his artwork goes to conservation organizations.

Theiss, an underwater cinematographer and shark advocate, has documented a variety of shark species, including the great whites in Baja, Mexico.

The exhibit of sculptures is included with aquarium admission, which starts at $25.95 for adult general admission (nonmember) and $14.95 for children 3 to 11. For aquarium members, general admission is free.

Admission for the lectures is $5 and free for aquarium members, seniors 62 years and over, teachers and students with valid ID and advanced reservations.
