Shining Seas

In partnership with Newport Aquarium.  This visual celebration of the sea’s beautiful and diverse wildlife commemorates Newport Aquarium’s 15th Anniversary.  At the east end, a giant sand tiger shark swims casually among fish, coral and sea turtles.  In the center of the seascape, a large American alligator floats in  murky waters filled with glowing bioluminescent sea life including cuttlefish, squid and jellyfish.  At the west end, otters playfully glide around a school of fish, and a larger-than-life African penguin welcomes visitors to the Newport Aquarium.


Special Thanks to Newport on the Levee.
