Art Break: Geology of South Carolina Coastal Regions
September 21, 2016
Christian Maloney Cicimurri is a USC geology professor and curator of natural science at McKissick Museum. In this geology-themed gallery talk from September 13, explore the SC coastline that inspired J Henry Fair’s works. Much of the Atlantic coast is protected by barrier islands, those ephemeral strips of sand that not only form picturesque beaches, but also produce unique and important ecosystems. Learn about the history, and the future, of these and other coastal landscapes from a naturalist's perspective.
