Skywriters & Constellations
June 15 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm 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.
(Please note the Planetarium will be closed January 2-6 for maintenance.)
