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. Please note that the event will be at the at the Ōamaru Opera House.
