Meet in Appel Lobby

“Bus Talk” at 4:30PM

Visitors are invited to board the MossLab, a renovated RV parked in front of the Museum. Spearheaded by Marion Wilson, Associate Professor and Director of Community Initiatives in the Visual Arts at Syracuse University, the MossLab (or MLAB—Mobile Literacy Arts Bus) has traveled up and down the eastern seaboard with the aim of creating an archive of native mosses. Join Wilson to learn about artistic observation and drawing of native mosses, including those contained in the Museum’s own Morgan Garden.  

“Gallery Talk” at 5:15PM

Simon Norfolk’s Stratographs series of photographs visualize the receding Lewis Glacier on Mt. Kenya, the second highest mountain in Africa. Seven prints from this series are currently on view at the Museum. Learn more at this gallery talk with Johannes Lehmann, environmental scientist and professor of soil and crop sciences at Cornell, and Andrea Inselmann, the Museum’s curator of modern and contemporary art & photography.

This free, two-part program is being held in anticipation of the March for Science on Earth Day 2017 (April 22). 

The Museum will be open tonight until 7:30PM.
