    Marine Megatropolis (1974-1981) Photographs by Bob Evans

    Bob Evan’s Photogaphs On Exhibit May 15, 2019 – August 26, 2019

    The exhibit is on loan from the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum and includes photographs from and the story of Bob Evans’s earliest underwater expeditions (1974-1981). Bob, and partner, Andy McMullen, were given carte blanche by every stakeholder in the Santa Barbara Channel to document the marine life as it developed below the surface, on the legs and crossbeams of the offshore oil platforms. The marine community under each has since been documented as more productive than any reef in the world. With the decommissioning of 7 platforms operating off the coasts of Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties, the Exhibit is pertinent.
