Hotel Casa del Mar & Schmidt Ocean Institute Partnership

Hotel Casa del Mar, located on the beach in Santa Monica, kicked off a new partnership with Schmidt Ocean Institute with an intimate and educational luncheon at the hotel’s newest event space, The Conservatory. The iconic hotel welcomed guests to the stunning oceanfront venue on Tuesday, January 16 for a special afternoon learning about the Ocean Rising initiative and Schmidt Ocean Institute’s deep sea expeditions and latest discoveries. The luncheon was the first of many events that the hotel and Schmidt Ocean Institute have in store for the new year.

Guests viewed art from Schmidt Ocean Institute’s Artist-at-Sea program, which brings artists aboard its research vessel to work alongside scientists, and heard from speakers including Wendy Schmidt, president and  co-founder of Schmidt Ocean Institute and artist Max Hooper Schneider, who participated in the program last year.

Ocean Rising is an initiative of Schmidt Ocean Institute and the Nekton Foundation to bring the wonders of the ocean to everyone everywhere through art, music, film, fashion and sports. The Ocean Rising Alliance is a collaborative network of partners spanning all areas of culture promoting Ocean empathy and support through their work. 

Hotel Casa del Mar has partnered with Schmidt Ocean Institute to assist in amplifying their state-of-the-art efforts to advance ocean exploration, scientific research and public outreach. The westside hotel will partner with Schmidt Ocean Institute on a series of events in 2024 and plans to display Max Hooper Schneider’s artwork in the hotel lobby during Frieze Los Angeles in February.
