The Explorers Club Annual Dinner 2015

Last weekend was a blast – it was The Explorers Club Annual Dinner in New York City!

Friday night was a cocktail reception on board the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, followed by a spectacular Saturday night dinner at the American Museum of Natural History.

Even in New York City I find elephants.

One of my original sketches of The Explorers Club was sold in the silent auction on the Intrepid for well over its retail price, and on Sunday, limited edition giclées of all 4 pieces were available for sale to visitors of the club.

I thought I’d finish with this photo of some rather bemused looking oryx, looking out from their diorama at the American Museum of Natural History on the evening of the reception!

What are they thinking? Oryx at the American Museum of Natural History.

It was a wonderful weekend full of amazing people – astronauts, marine biologists, archaeologists, astrophysicists, artists and good friends!

Until next time…
