Skywriters & Constellations

November 28 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00pm on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until June 16, 2019

Thru  June 16, 2019, Wednesday – Sunday at 4pm
Recommended for adults and children ages 12 and up (22 minutes)

A new media installation and exhibition by Brooklyn artist Kambui Olujimi. A short (22 minute) fulldome video commissioned specifically for the Museum’s Dreyfuss Planetarium, Skywriters is the latest work in Olujimi’s Wayward North project. It is an immersive work of art, a collage of time and space that brings his mythic narrative brilliantly to life against the night sky of the planetarium’s dome. Constellations, a related series of 12 lithographs, introduces visitors to many of the characters and key events in Olujimi’s contemporary heroic tale.

Skywriters will be screened in the Dreyfuss Planetarium at 4 pm daily. It is free with Museum admission, but ticketing is required. The Constellations exhibit will be on display in the Garden Passage adjacent to the Planetarium.
