Tour of Circles in Space with Richard Haas and Marc Taylor


Sunday, October 10

1pm Where

Planetarium, Galleries


Join artist Richard Haas and Marc Taylor, Manager of Planetarium and Science Programs, for a walkthrough of the exhibition Circles in Space from an astronomical perspective. Together, they will mine the connections between art and science as expressed in Haas’ works, which are inspired, in part, by the colors and structures seen in images from the Hubble Space Telescope. To complete the experience, see original animations on the planetarium dome that fragment and play with artwork that Haas created specifically for this environment.
