On a recent visit to CSM, Chang mentioned that he has kept every water housing he has ever used. The museum thought the housings would make a fascinating display and invited Chang to speak about each housing and about his life in surf photography. The evening will include a meet and greet, a seated talk about the history of his camera water housings, and a question and answer period. The housings will be on display from March 31, 2012-January 2013.

Cost: $5 for CSM members, $10 for non-members
