DUE TO CLOUDY WEATHER OCTOBER 14, WE HAVE RESCHEDULED THIS EVENT FOR OCTOBER 20, TUESDAY! Join artist Russell Crotty and the graduate student-led Astronomy Club at UC Santa Cruz for an evening of star gazing.
Russell Crotty is known internationally for his drawings and sculpture based on direct astronomical observation, investigating the cosmos and exploring the nature of the universe through art. His astronomical drawings, sculpture, and large-scale artist-made books are in major collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. He is currently artist-in-residence at the Institute of the Arts and Sciences, collaborating with the UC Lick Observatory and Theoretical Astrophysics Santa Cruz (TASC) to create a new body of work. This work will be exhibited at the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) beginning in Fall 2016.
Meet in front of the Digital Arts Research Center (DARC) at 7:30 pm, and then take a short stroll to the Great Meadow where telescopes and viewing equipment will provide breath-taking glimpses of the cosmos.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Parking is available in the Performing Arts Lot adjacent to Digital Arts Research Center (MAP).
