Aquarium visitors are very familiar with the River Journey escalator that takes guests up four stories from the lobby to the Cove Forest exhibit. It leaves quite an impression on many people and, perhaps for the very first time, it has inspired a work of art. This pencil drawing was sent to us by a young artist from Kendall, Kansas. Here's what she had to say:
"Hey Tennessee Aquarium people! My name is Rachel Horton and I am 16. I am an artist who looks everywhere I can for inspiration! Last Christmas I visited the aquarium and took a bunch of pictures. The one I decided to draw was a picture of the long escalator. I've spent the last two months trying to make the drawing look as realistic as possible. Attached is the finished drawing! I hope you like it!" - Rachel Horton
Great job Rachel and thanks for sharing your art with everyone.
