Don’t miss your chance. This is a unique opportunity to see a melding of art, science, geography, and technology here in the Ames community. Come see some great art.
Kids and adults can stop in to make a color wheel or model of a Landsat satellite or search the images to complete the scavenger hunt. The exhibit is running through Sunday, February 26, 2017.
Thursday 4-7 pm; Friday 2-5 pm; Saturday 11 am -5 pm
Sunday Feb 19 & 26, 2-5 pm
The opening reception for the Earth as Art exhibit is on February, 2, 5-8pm. Several younger visitors were in attendance. They created model satellites, color wheels, and searched the gallery to complete the scavenger hunt. There was gallery talk at 6:30 pm by Brent Yantis, the LouisianaView director and the exhibit collection curator, he explained how the images were selected and shared some of his favorite images with us.
There was a reception of crudites and cheese as well as a King Cake that was brought from Louisiana. The King Cake tasted like a cross between a glazed doughnut and a cinnamon roll, filled with chocolate and cream filling. LouisianaView and IowaView are part of the larger AmericaView, nationwide consortium for remote sensing education, research, and geospatial applications.
IowaView and ISU GIS Facility will be hosting an art exhibit in the Design on Main gallery in February. It will be a unique exhibit that is a fusion of art and science – we hope that the exhibit will inspire viewers with beautiful images from around our planet and also provide a platform for education (satellite imagery, geography, earth science, physics, and art.)
The opening reception for the exhibit is on February, 2, 5-8pm. We are planning to have a gallery talk at 6:30pm by Brent Yantis, the AmericaView collection curator as well as refreshments.
