The Pratt unveils Whales in Our Waters in an opening reception 5 to 7 p.m. Friday. The first exhibition of 2013 is the culmination of an effort that began in 1999 to salvage a juvenile gray whale that washed up on the beach in Halibut Cove. The bones were preserved, prepared and assembled to create the fully articulated skeleton which forms the centerpiece of this new exhibit. A total of 140 people gave 2,200 volunteer hours to the Gray Whale Project.
The exhibit celebrates the community spirit that cared for the six-year-old male gray whale\’s articulation. It gives images and profiles for a total of nine cetaceous creatures, including harbor porpoises, humpbacks, belugas, mienke and beaked whales.
