Description

Museum Hours: MTWF 10 - 5; Th 10 - 8; S Su 2 - 5
Mapping the Planets in Silk and Sound, a multimedia exhibition, offers a unique approach to our corner of the universe: the solar system. Large-scale silk batiks by artist Mary Edna Fraser provide insights into each planet's personality. Planetary scientist Ted Maxwell of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum provides text as the viewer experiences silk galaxies and heavenly bodies. Music composed by Mark Mercury evokes the majesty of our nine planetary worlds.
