Inspired by the global ocean scenes in Hiroshi Sugimoto: Time Exposed, Dr. John Mark Dean, professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina, discusses his research in ecology. By analyzing art through the ages, he learns about the role of bluefin tuna in the Mediterranean and how an ancient fishery confronts modern demands.
ArtBreak is a program that looks at art through a different lens. Each session features a speaker who gives insight into their worldview by sharing their interpretation of works of art at the CMA. Begin the morning at the museum with pastries and coffee sold at Curiosity Coffee Bar’s pop-up café.
