Margie Turrin, Coordinator at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, will present West Meets East in a Unique Antarctic Voyage on Tuesday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. at the Bruce Museum.

In late fall 2013, a small group from Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory traveled to the Antarctica Peninsula with The Antarctic Forum, an interdisciplinary group of Chinese leaders and elites.

Ms. Turrin will discuss how the magic of Antarctica served as a backdrop for conversations on entering a new era for Antarctica, with China and the world moving towards environmental conservation, harmonious social development, and societal responsibility.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a reception with light refreshments and open galleries, and the lecture begins at 7 pm. Reservations are required by calling 203-413-6757.The lecture is free to museum members and students with identification, and $15 for non-members. This program complements the Bruce Museum’s new exhibition Antarctica: Photographs by Diane Tuft, on view through Feb. 1, 2015.

The Bruce Museum is located at One Museum Drive. Free on-site parking is available and the museum is accessible to individuals with disabilities. For more information, visit Brucemuseum.org.
