Sustainable seafood is a cause near and dear to our hearts here at The National. When Seabear Oyster Bar opened, we had the chance to take this mission even further.

Now in partnership with the UGA Marine Extension Service, Sea Grant and Cine Athens, we present an evening highlighting the future of sustainable aquaculture through multiple art forms, including the oyster itself.

The evening's lineup features "The Hidden World of Oystering" art exhibit and sale by renowned artist, Alan Campbell, a book reading by local author, AndrĂ© Gallant and the Athens premiere of the film "Shifting Baselines", produced by Blue Voyage Productions in partnership with Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant. 

Oysters on the half shell and regional cuisine will be served by The National and Seabear Oyster Bar all at Ciné Nonprofit Theater, truly qualifying this extraordinary event as "Keeping It Local!"
