MIT Sea Grant Coastal Ecologist Julie Simpson gave a talk to kick off the Copley Square Hotel Art Square Gallery’s first exhibit, Ocean Life.
Artist Nedret Andre’s seagrass-inspired art opening was held on July 18 5-7pm. Ocean Life is a new series of Andre’s abstract paintings that explores seagrass habitats. Seagrass is a foundation plant that feeds, shelters and protects thousands of sea creatures.
