Big sharp teeth, powerful jaws and a taste for blood...that is what many know about sharks, the predators of the sea. Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum's new exhibit, "Shark! The Misunderstood Fish," explores the history and biology of these creatures through art, film, fossils and more.

The exhibit will feature the work of renowned artist and marine biologist Richard Ellis, as well as artists April Gornik and Dan Rizzie. Ellis is one of the country's leading marine biologists and conservationists. He is known for many of his museum installments, including a 94-foot Blue Whale in New York City's American Museum of Natural History.

Richard Ellis is the author of over 100 magazine articles and 23 books, including "The Book of Sharks." (Photo: www.facebook.com)


Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum is paying tribute to the 40th anniversary of the movie "Jaws" during the opening weekend of "Shark! The Misunderstood Fish." On Friday, July 10th, the Museum is holding an outdoor screening of "Jaws" on their lawn from 6 to 10 p.m. Attendees will also enjoy wine, beer, food, and refreshments.

On Saturday, July 11th, the Museum is hosting a family picnic with activities for children, like balloon twisting, arts and crafts and more. Then when the sun goes down, there will be an outdoor screening of "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Cruse of the Black Pearl" at 6 p.m.

To finish off the weekend, the Museum is holding a lecture with Richard Ellis on Sunday, July 12th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The discussion and multimedia presentation is free, but seating is limited and will come on a first-come-first basis.
