American Museum of Natural History’s Winter Dance Underwater

The American Museum of Natural History’s Junior Council and its guests partied under a blue hue in the Museum’s Milstein Hall of Ocean Life on Thursday night for its “Winter Dance Underwater” benefit event. Art Zealous joined the crowd of young professionals and philanthropists, who danced under the 94-ft. long “giant blue whale” to a soundtrack by Harley Viera-Newton.

 

The Junior Council, comprised of members between the ages of 22 and 45, supports the Museum in its mission to discover, interpret and disseminate – through scientific research and education – knowledge about human cultures, the natural world and the universe. A dinner preceded the dance in the historic Akeley Hall of African Mammals. Winter Dance Underwater raised essential funds for the Museum’s scientific and educational programs.
