Cosmic Culture: Intersections of Art and Outer Space
Revolving around Jacob Hashimoto’s “The Other Sun,” a Minecraft-inspired installation made from 2,000 bamboo-and-paper kites, "Cosmic Culture: Intersections of Art and Outer Space" explores how space exploration and visual art have influenced each other. Circle the gallery and see 1940s and ‘50s prints from science fiction artist Chesley Bonestell — an inspiration to astronomer and astrophysicist Carl Sagan — alongside NASA images taken years later, historic star charts from around the world, planetary landscapes, the life cycle of stars, a mixed media installation from reclaimed materials, a feed of NASA images of the sun, and much more.
Featured contemporary artists include Carrie Dickason, Tulsa, Oklahoma; Cassandra Hanks, Los Angeles; Jacob Hashimoto, New York; Kysa Johnson, Los Angeles; and Darci Lenker, Norman, Oklahoma. Cosmic Culture is open through March 29, 2020.
