Palmetto Brewing

289 Huger St  • . Charleston, SC  •  Free parking.

Most of us picture coral reefs along sunny tropical Islands, using their symbiotic algae to turn sunshine into food. Visions of what lines the deeper, darker ocean bottoms likely shift towards rock, sand and mud. Dr. Peter Etnoyer, a NOAA research biologist with the National Center for Coastal Ocean Sciences, has spent his career revealing a much more exciting array of life along our ocean depths. Join us to hear Peter share his experience using a submersible to study deep sea corals from Alaskan Seamounts to the Caribbean Sea. He will show videos and talk about discoveries there, and in our ocean backyard off South Carolina! What allows deep sea corals to thrive where they do? Why do bamboo corals glow in the dark? And what do they all have in common with stained glass and psychedelics? That last question will be revealed by teaching artist Marielena Martinez, as she shares the medieval to gothic history of stained-glass art, and guides you to create your own faux stained-glass, seascape-inspired suncatchers.

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!  $15 in-person general admission, $10 for educators, FREE for students. Food available from Gooble Gooble. $3 select pint specials from Palmetto and $1 per pint sold will be donated to help support Community Science + Art!


Due to the continued spread of COVID-19 in our community, we feel it is important to take precautions to protect our guests. We are excited to be using Palmetto Brewery's well-ventilated space. Seats within the main event section will be limited to guests that provide proof of full covid vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event. Masks are strongly encouraged, and advance registration is required. There will be some additional tables open to the public along the back wall, behind the aisle to the connecting brewery rooms. - We welcome guests unable to be vaccinated at this time to use this space to participate.
