Infinity Cube

Apr 7 - ongoing

Birch Aquarium at Scripps is launching Infinity Cube, a new, immersive art installation that explores bioluminescence by combining glowing creatures with world-class science, high-tech projection and an original soundscape. Step into an 8-foot cube and become surrounded by video projections of single-celled marine organisms - called dinoflagellates - reacting to various stimulants such as the human heartbeat, music, water flow, and air pressure. Through activities and interpretation accompanying the installation, guests will have opportunities to learn more about the phenomenon of living light and how marine species use it for camouflage, protection and communication.

Alonzo Horton Exhibit

Jun 15 - ongoing

2017 marks the 150th anniversary of the arrival that would change San Diego's history forever. On April 17, 1867 Alonzo Horton arrived on a ship from San Francisco and saw in the dusty fields the possibility of a great city along the bay. He soon purchased a large plot of land on which he would tirelessly build New Town San Diego, now downtown San Diego, for the next 42 years. His influence is still seen in much of our beloved city and his name adorns many of our buildings and landmarks. The exhibit "Alonzo Horton: The Sesquicentennial of the Founding of New Town San Diego" chronicles the life of San Diego's founding father Alonzo Horton and the early growth of New Town San Diego. On view are the Museum's collections of photos, maps, and ephemera related to Horton.
