Manfred Olson Planetarium, Physics Building
Now accepting art submissions! Click link above for more information.
Art in Space combines the majestic beauty of the cosmos with the creativity of art. Join us in the Planetarium and Physics building lobby to look at beautiful space-themed art created by local artists. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase the art in a silent auction that benefits the artist and the planetarium. The artists that created the art will be on hand to answer questions and discuss how they designed their out-of-this-world pieces. Afterwards, a special planetarium show that explores the art in space will be presented by UWM Planetarium Director, Jean Creighton. Light refreshments will be served at the event. Art in Space is on Saturday April 12, 2014 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Admission is $10 early bird, $15 at the door or $5 with UWM Student ID.
