Apr 20 - ongoing

Experience being aboard a modern carrier at sea in the new giant-screen film Aircraft Carrier: Guardian of the Seas.  This film is screening in California only at the Fleet Science Center, in the incredible Eugene Heikoff and Marilyn Jacobs Heikoff Giant IMAX® Dome Theater.

Aircraft Carrier is an immersive film packed with adrenaline-laced visuals and human stories. It pays stirring tribute to the crucial role modern aircraft carriers play in maintaining the freedom of the seas and keeping the sea lanes open for commerce.

Organized by the Figge Art Museum in collaboration with Susan Mitchell Crawley, independent curator and formerly Curator of Folk Art at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, this traveling exhibition will present approximately 60 of Hawkins’ lively paintings, drawings and sculptures.
