Art of the Horse

"Art of the Horse" Rides in to Birch Aquarium

Don't miss this unique opportunity to see an artist painting one of the “Art of the Horse” statues being created in honor of the Breeders’ Cup, which is coming to the Del Mar Racetrack for the first time this November. 

Marine conservationist and artist Chase Martin, who is also a graduate of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, will be painting “Triton’s Steed” in front of a live audience at Birch Aquarium from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 15-16 in the aquarium’s Education Courtyard.

The sculpture, which is sponsored by the Team 19 Syndicate, developed by Carol and Russ Penniman, will be on display in the Entrance Courtyard at Birch Aquarium from late July through November, when it will be auctioned off as part of the Breeders’ Cup Festival with proceeds benefitting Birch Aquarium and the San Diego Sports Alliance.

Included with Birch Aquarium admission.
