The Man Who Swam Inside the Planet
May 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Amelia Island Museum of History hosts Julie Hauserman to present “The Man Who Swam Inside the Planet”. Julie Hauserman shows and discusses powerful images taken inside the planet by the late National Geographic explorer and cave diver Wes Skiles, who grew up in Jacksonville and lived in High Springs before his death in 2010. This program accompanies the Water/Ways Smithsonian exhibit on display at the Amelia Island Museum of History. Water/Ways is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Florida Humanities. Support for the exhibition and programming was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
