DEEP TIME: Imagining the Ancient Inland Sea

DEEP TIME: Imagining the Ancient Inland Sea is an immersive, family-friendly experience running through August 24 at the Gallery @ The Library, Scottsdale Civic Center. Presented by Scottsdale Arts, DEEP TIME takes visitors on a journey to the prehistoric ocean that once covered the Sonoran Desert, as imagined through the eyes of Tucson-based artists Lex Gjurasic and Rachel Slick. This sculpted environment uses color, pattern, light, texture and experimental materials to create an ocean-bottom experience of being surrounded by fanciful sea life, including kelp towers, coral reefs, an underwater garden, a bioluminescent tunnel and a large sea beast.
