Artist in Residence
Installation Period: January 13 - February 3, 2003


Artist Vargas-Suarez investigates High Proper Motion of the stars and constellations with wall murals and working drawings. High Proper Motion, the movement of distant stars and constellations over millions of years, creates the changing relationship of stars to one another and to viewers on earth. Vargas-Suarez's installation includes circular wall drawings of the northern and southern hemispheres and a radial-symmetry mural of High Proper Motion covering the entire curvilinear wall outside the museum's Andrus planetarium.
