Float in the currents of creativity through our marine specimen collection for an evening of guided drawing and refreshments with guest artist Marguerita Hagan. Marguerita Hagan is a ceramic sculptor based in Philadelphia. The concept of interdependence plays throughout her sculpture, teaching and community arts. Marguerita’s La Mer ceramics series magnify the largest yet the least-known element of our planet, the ocean. See a few of Marguerita’s works in person and the marine treasures that inspired them in our 19th-century cases. Then, move into a deep dive with Marguerita’s support, capturing a species you love on paper in literal detail or conceptual exploration. As you draw, enjoy refreshments and a themed cocktail made with W.P. Palmer Distilling Company’s Liberty Gin. $25, $15 for members of the Wagner.
