Join us for a special tour of National Geographic Photo Ark by Joel Sartore focused on the various marine species on view with Senior Extension Resource Educator for Cornell Cooperative Extension, Dr. Matt Sclafani.
Dr. Sclafani is a marine ecologist who has been studying horseshoe crab conservation for over 15 years. He has established the New York Horseshoe Crab Monitoring Network which coordinates over 600 volunteers annually to collect data for conservation management. His research on horseshoe crabs has also included using radio and acoustic telemetry to assess horseshoe crab movement and habitat use, as well as understanding connectivity and survival. Other research interests include fish passage restoration and shellfish enhancement and restoration projects.

This documentary explores the iconoclastic life of museum curator Henry Geldzahler. A voice in the wilderness during the 1960s, Geldzahler championed the work of pop artists such as Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, who were not highly accepted in the art scene. Through footage from the era and interviews with artists, the film reveals Geldzahler's contributions to the art world -- including his landmark exhibition "New York Painting and Sculpture: 1940-1970" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The screening followed by panel discussion moderated by Holly Peterson with Bob Colacello, Lisa Dennison, Met Director Max Hollein, Jane Holzer and Director/Producer Peter Rosen.
