15jul1:00 pm3:30 pmSpurlock Summer Sundays: Planets, Stars, and the MoonArts Exploration

Event Details

his summer, we’re exploring the natural world with three month-long series of programs on precious metals (June), planets and stars (July), and plants (August). We’ll look at the ways different cultures have used natural resources, explained natural phenomena, and found inspiration in the world around them.

Examine artifacts, join in songs and stories, and dig into sample materials. Experts from around town and campus will offer demonstrations and discussions. All programs are free and available on a drop-in schedule.

The third Sunday of each month is an Arts Exploration, offering visitors an opportunity to create a different special art project.

Each month has a distinct theme, with a series of programs for different ages and learning styles within those themes. Look for different programs on every  Sunday of each month.
