Paradise Lost?

Here on the west coast, we like to think that we're pretty well acquainted with the Pacific Ocean. But a new exhibit at the University of British Columbia's Museum of Anthropology shows that there's more to that big blue thing than meets the eye. It's called 'Paradise Lost?' and it features artworks by 13 artists from New Zealand, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Vanuatu, and the Solomon Islands. The curator, Dr. Carol Mayer, took Matthew Parsons on a guided tour through the exhibition.

You can listen in on that tour at on Sunday morning between 8:00 and 8:30am.
