AQUARIUM OF THE PACIFIC & CREWEST STUDIO PRESENT:
WILLIAM KIEFFER | “CITY OF FISH”
ONE NIGHT ONLY
November 10, 2017 | 7pm – 11pm
AQUARIUM OF THE PACIFIC
100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, California 90802
City of Fish is an immersive, walk-through art installation weaving a whimsical narrative about the sunken coastal cities of our future, and the underwater creatures that make it their home. Kieffer has risen to prominence creating cartoonish but realistically rendered sculptures of fish and other animals, made entirely out trash and found objects he picked up from the beach. Unbeknownst to admirers, these creatures have all been part of a larger narrative that Kieffer is premiering for the first time in the installation.
City of Fish will be on view for one night only during Aquarium of the Pacific’s November Night Dive event, which will be held from 7pm – 11pm. In addition to showcasing Kieffer’s installation, there will be live music, food, drinks and other live entertainment. The Aquarium of the Pacific is located at 100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, California 90802.
