JAHC: Merridy Davis “Plankton: Science + Art,” Juneau Arts & Culture Center, 350 Whittier St, 4:30-7 p.m. Merridy Davis lives and works in Juneau. Having lived on the West Coast her whole life, it isn’t surprising that the ocean has long captured her imagination.

With this plankton series, Davis aims to bring attention to these vital marine organisms, while at the same time celebrating their fantastical shapes. The exhibit will be aimed at students of all ages with take-home information to spark further study.

Exhibit up through the month.
