Visitors to Oklahoma City can take a journey under the sea at the new exhibit entitled Silver Seas in the Satellite Galleries at Science Museum Oklahoma. The gallery, which focuses primarily on undersea life and environments, gives guests an intimate view of thriving ocean life – a sight that may seem rare to people following the gulf oil spill situation.
“In a time when people are seeing image after image of the gulf oil spill on television this exhibit couldn’t be timelier,” said Rick Sinnet, artist / idealist for the Satellite Galleries at Science Museum Oklahoma. “This exhibit offers a really great example of why the preservation of ocean life is vital to both the survival of human beings and the survival of the large number of species around the planet that depend on the ocean.”
The current gallery was published in “Silver Seas a Retrospective,” by Ernest H. Brooks II. Further underlining the importance of photography to ongoing ocean preservation is the following in the introduction by explorer, environmentalist, educator and film producer Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of world renowned ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau.
“At a time when we face critical issues about the health of the ocean, we need the inspiration of such images to remind us of what is at risk. The ocean is, after all, the main engine driving and controlling the earth’s climate. Without it, life here as we know it, and humanity in particular, would not only be unable to survive – it would never have evolved in the first place.”
