Join us in a celebration of the diversity of life on Earth as art and science collide in a series of one-of-a-kind multimedia experiences.
- Be dazzled by an interactive outdoor light projection by internationally acclaimed artist Naziha Mestaoui depicting the Tree of Life, the map of the relationships that link every living thing.
- Enjoy a short 3-D animated film about Earth’s stunning biodiversity, produced by James Oliverio and a team of digital artists at the University of Florida’s Digital Worlds Institute.
- Learn how biodiversity contributes to conservation, medicine, agriculture and ecology in a talk by Florida Museum biologist Doug Soltis, who helped build the first Tree of Life to encompass every named organism.
- Discover how you are related to the animals, plants, fungi and microbes with which we share our planet, and get inspired with ways you can help protect life on Earth.
The event is free. Food trucks will be available.
