Sayaka Ganz utilizes reclaimed plastic household objects like brush strokes which appear visibly unified at a distance though separate at close proximity; she describes her style as "3-D impressionism". Ganz's aim is to impart new life to the items by transforming them into wildlife forms in full motion- including horses, birds, swimming polar bears, and "Uta" a humpbacked whale.

Exhibition - Sharks!- Bruce Museum

07/22/2019 to 09/01/2019

One Museum Dr, Greenwich, CT Phone: 203.869.0376.

There are few creatures which inspire so much fascination – and fear – as sharks. However, sharks are far from the mindless killing machines that they are commonly portrayed as. Some live peaceful lives skimming plankton out of the water with specialized gill rakers. Other sharks have robust social lives and will remember their favored companions year after year. A few turn the phrase "cold-blooded killer" on its head even more thoroughly and live with warm blood pumping through their veins.

To look at a shark is to see over 400 million years of evolutionary success. Whether they are disguising themselves on the reef floor or speeding at 45 mph after a school of fish, sharks are perfectly adapted to their lifestyle and environment.

However, the seas of the world are changing. Plastic and other debris pollute the water, and sharks are harvested by the millions to feed a seemingly insatiable demand for shark fin soup and other products. Can these ancient predators survive in a modern ocean?

Dive in with Sharks! at the Bruce Museum and watch live sharks develop in eggs, see life-sized models of sharks, and compare and contrast jaws and teeth from almost 20 different species!
