Are you a fan of National Geographic? Do you follow their photographers and reporters? Well, now is your chance to see two of them–live!

On September 17, the Moss Arts Center is hosting National Geographic Live: “Coral Kingdoms and Empires of Ice.” This event will feature underwater photographer David Doubilet and aquatic biologist and photojournalist Jennifer Hayes as they share a visual journey of their National Geographic assignments to some of the world’s most unique marine environments. The event will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Moss Arts Center. For tickets and more information, see the Moss Arts Center website.

Before the show, join Daniel Bird Tobin and Al Evangelista, Faculty Fellows with the Center for Communicating Science and instructors in the School of Performing Arts, for their performance pieces developed in collaboration with Coastal@VT and other researchers. This pre-event to the National Geographic Live presentation will take place in the Cube at the Moss Arts Center at 6 p.m. The original theatre works, focused on sea-level rise, climate change, forced migration, and even lasers, explore how the arts can make scientific data come alive. “Animating and Embodying Science” is open to the public free of charge.

There may be a few seats left for an opportunity to meet with Doubilet and Hayes during a private meet-and-greet. This pre-event will take place at the Moss Arts Center from 5:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. and must be registered for through eventbrite.

Mark your calendars for these exciting events and join us in welcoming David Doubilet and Jennifer Hayes to Virginia Tech!
