Under the Sea
Under the Sea includes natural history specimens and historic art fromSheffield’s collections alongside contemporary works of art, craft and design. Visitors can help to crochet a coral to add to Britain’s ‘Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef’ or stand back and marvel at the skill and labour in a life-sized pencil drawing of a whale.
It is hard to believe that human actions on land could affect the vast oceans. But our pressure on the oceans is threatening not just the species we exploit for food but global mass extinctions. Under the Sea explores the beauty and importance of the oceans, their significance for our planet and what we as individuals can do to help protect them for the future.
Under the Sea has been created by Museums Sheffield.
