Updated: Oct 17, 2021
The Waitaki Whitestone Geopark presents:
A Marriage of Science & Art
An artist with a vivid imagination looks through a scientist's lens at the earth. He meets deep time and the wondrous complexity of evolution. And it all leads to penguins!
A presentation by Marcus Richards and Manu Berry
Marcus Richards is a paleontologist at the University of Otago with a passion for science communication. When he and artist Manu Berry met they realised that they shared a fascination for the history of life and a desire to share their awe with others. Marcus conveyed his passion for studying the evolutionary history of penguins, a story closely tied to New Zealand’s fossil record.
This event is part of the Waitaki Arts Festival.
6 - 7pm Thursday 21 October. Please note that the event will be at the Ōamaru Opera House.
