Celestial Imaginings Arts After Hours Launch Party
The Louisiana Art & Science Museum (LASM) will host an Art After Hours Launch Party to celebrate the opening of the museum’s newest exhibition, Celestial Imaginings: Artists Exploring the Galaxies, on Friday, August 18, 2023, from 6 PM – 8:30 PM in The Republic Finance Gallery.
The exhibition, which was designed to celebrate this year’s 20th anniversary of the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium, features eight contemporary artists searching for answers to life’s mysteries by combining art and science. “The 'Celestial Imaginings Art After Hours Launch Party’ celebrates artists who have used scientific processes, made observations, and studied the universe's mechanics,” states LASM Curator and Public Programming Manager Tracey Barhorst. “They use their own interpretations of the stars, planets, and night sky to inspire their work and spark their imagination and that of their audiences.”
