  1. Cosmos: Imagining the Universe

    February 13, 10:00 AM - July 26, 5:00 PM @ Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center

    This exhibit explores the mysteries of the universe, both scientific and fantastical, theoretical and fictional, real and imagined. How do artists render the work of scientists, authors, explorers, astronomers, cartoonists, Trekkies, LARPers, astrologers, and philosophers? This exhibit embraces not only what science has revealed about space, but what humans have imagined about the cosmos. From the results of scientific inquiry to the creative minds of science fiction authors and fans, this exhibit celebrates how space has stimulated human understanding and creativity. From the big bang theory to worm holes and warp speed, artists have created works that bring to life what we know of space and what we imagine. Assembled here is a vibrant and diverse selection of works that speak to our fascination with the cosmos
