Sherman’s Lagoon Cartoonist Jim Toomey to Speak as Part of National Aquarium Marjorie Lynn Bank Lecture Series


National Aquarium will welcome Jim Toomey, the creator of Sherman’s Lagoon, a nationally syndicated cartoon featuring Sherman the shark, as part of The Marjorie Lynn Bank Lecture Series. Jim will demonstrate the process of developing and illustrating his popular cartoon and talk about how he’s inspired by marine life

There will be a wine and cheese reception prior to the lecture.

A Baltimore native, Marjorie Lynn Bank was an award-winning underwater photographer, avid conservationist and good friend to National Aquarium. Marjorie used her photography and her extensive knowledge of marine biology to spread environmental awareness and to promote conservation of the aquatic world. She lectured extensively, and was in demand as a featured speaker. After her death in 1994, the Aquarium established this lecture series as a tribute to Bank's legacy of conservation and respect for aquatic life. This lecture series features scientists, photographers, conservationists, activists, and researchers who are preeminent in their fields.
