A headshot of Sharon Katz Cooper looking at camera.

Building the Smithsonian's Sant Ocean Hall―like any major exhibition―was a major undertaking. Over the course of five years, it required hundreds of people with a vast array of skills and backgrounds. Many of these people worked on one aspect of the exhibit, such as the whale model, the fabrication, or the writing.

Sharon Katz-Cooper is the project's educator―advising the team on educational goals and objectives, and serving as advocate for the visitor's perspective.
