    New Photographic Exhibit: Life in the Extreme Deep - Harvard Museum of Natural History

    Harvard Museum of Natural History announces a new photographic exhibit opening in the museum lobby on October 12, showcasing the research of Harvard’s Loeb Associate Professor of Natural Sciences Peter R. Girguis and stunning deep-sea photographs by scientists who work in the field with Professor Girguis. Life in the Extreme Deep will remain on display through June 2012.

    In conjunction with the photographic exhibit, the museum will offer a lecture by Harvard biologist Peter Girguis on Wednesday October 12 at 6:30 pm. Girguis will discuss issues surrounding the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill and what biologists are doing to understand how natural “oil-eating” microbes are able to aid in the cleanup. A reception in the exhibit will follow the talk. Tickets are free to museum members and $10 others. For descriptions of all museum events, see http://www.hmnh.harvard.edu/lectures_and_special_events/index.php.

    The Harvard Museum of Natural History is located at 26 Oxford Street, a 7-8 minute walk through historic Harvard Yard from the Harvard Square T station. The Museum is handicapped accessible. More than 192,000 visitors a year make the museum the University’s most visited.
