In this episode of Radio Art Center, which aired on May 30, 2015, the Des Moines Art Center's Director of Marketing and PR Christine Doolittle sits down with Curator of Prints and Drawings Amy N. Worthen to talk about the Art Center's newest print exhibition, Sea Life: Dürer to Dion. 

Sea Life, 2013, a sculpture by contemporary artist Mark Dion, replicates an itinerant bookseller's portable stall, such as those seen along the banks of the Seine. The painted wood case on legs opens up to reveal 236 old and new books on oceanography, marine biology, commerce, travel, boating, and adventure novels written in dozens of languages, as well as postcards and prints, each on having something to do with the sea.

Sea Life: Dürer to Dion will be on display at the Des Moines Art Center June 5 - September 20, 2015 in the John Brady Print Gallery. Learn more about the exhibition here.
