Journey with us to Steward Observatory’s Mt. Lemmon
SkyCenter high in the Santa Catalina Mountains of Arizona. The dark
night skies at this site offers superb stargazing. With the 32-inch
diameter Schulman Telescope we will explore celestial objects visible
in the winter sky – from the planet Mars and spectacular nebulae to
star clusters and distant galaxies!
“Studio Snapshot” is a new series of short videos
exploring the work of Newark contemporary artists. In this second
video, artist Danielle Scott discusses her background and how mentors
within the Newark art scene helped develop her practice.
Set in The Newark Museum of Art’s Victorian-era mansion, Escape from
The Ballantine House challenges you and your friends to race the
clock as you try to find the hidden Ballantine Beer recipe and escape
the house before getting caught. This experience will be available on
Zoom with a facilitator. Individuals will be grouped into break-out
rooms of three to five people.
Students are invited to participate in an arts workshop of their
choice. All projects are inspired by art from The Newark Museum of
Art’s collection and will be based on one of these themes: portraits,
print at home, sculptures from recycled materials or stop-motion
video. The theme of this session is sculpture. Materials list
will be sent after the experience is booked.
