His multi-year quest to document the Arctic took Florian Schulz to the ends of the Earth.
From the Northern Lights to playful polar bear cubs, life beyond the arctic circle is unlike anyplace else on Earth, as Schulz found out over the course of 34 months in the untamed north.
Despite the Arctic’s reputation as a barren wasteland, award-winning photographer Schulz discovered a vibrant ecosystem including playful polar bears, mysterious musk ox and a herd of thousands of caribou in the high arctic.
He camped for weeks in jarring winter conditions, accompanied traditional Inuit hunters and sailed the arctic waters, all to get an intimate look at life in the Arctic.
Through breathtaking imagery, the National Geographic photographer takes audiences on a legendary journey into the Arctic kingdom— with a special focus on the Arctic Refuge, one of the world's last great wilderness.
After the show, guests are invited to join Florian Schulz for a reception at Discovery Place Science to explore the polar extremes with a visit to the Museum's new exhibition Antarctic Dinosaurs.
Check-in will be at Tryon St. Admissions.
Cash/credit bars with wine and beer will be available in the Museum, along with light snacks available for purchase.
Parking fee for Discovery Place Science Parking Deck is not included.
Florian Schulz will also present a daytime school show on Tuesday, March 24, at the McGlohon Theater, followed by an immersive experience at Discovery Place Science. Daytime shows are available at a discounted rate for school groups only.
