Dr. Brian Huber, Paleontologist, on Building the Sant Ocean Hall
Building the Sant Ocean Hall
Building the Sant Ocean Hall- Like any major exhibition, is a major undertaking. Over the course of five years, it required hundreds of people with a vast array of skills and backgrounds. Many of these people worked on one aspect of the exhibit, such as the whale model, the fabrication, or the writing.One group of people, however, shaped the project form start to finish. The Ocean Hall Core Team directed the content of the exhibit, coordinated selection of all specimens, and approved all design and text. They shaped the Ocean Hall exhibit.Dr. Brian Huber is the core team's paleontologist, bringing the perspective of the long history of the ocean to the project.
