The Mermaid Tale

Meet Rhanu the Mermaid
Saturday, October 31
10am to 4pm

Rhanu, a magical mermaid, will be making a special appearance for Halloween and launching our new Mermaid Quest scavenger hunt around the museum. Rhanu will be modeling Chelsea Rousso’s wearable glass art, inspired by the ocean. On land, Rhanu is better known as Alexandra Barth, a marine biologist and educator with a special interest in sharks and ocean conservation.
