JELLIES: LIVING ART

 

There's a new wave of excitement in downtown Chattanooga as the Tennessee Aquarium and Hunter Museum of American Art team up to present Jellies: Living Art.

 

This exhibit embodies the spirit of the award-winning, highly-rated gallery at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Visitors to the Tennessee Aquarium's Ocean Journey building will find themselves immersed in a glimmering world of animals and art. Six species of jellies capture the imagination as they pulse inside specially designed displays next to striking studio glass. The exhibit is designed to illustrate how the jellies and the arts share common characteristics of color, pattern, movement and rhythm.

In one portion of the gallery, jelly displays are paired with mirrors which create a visual feast for the eyes, surrounding guests with an endless swarm of moon jellies. In other areas, slowly pulsing sea nettles dance a watery ballet. Blubber jellies strike a chord with those who imagine what it's like to venture to another world - the ocean realm.
