Nurture Nature Center

NNC is seeking artists to explore the galaxy!

On Saturday, October 30th, (1-2:30pm) Nurture Nature Center will hold a special Science on a Sphere event to celebrate the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope which will operate in an orbit about 1 million miles from Earth, explore the first galaxies that formed in the early Universe, and will send back images of distant space six months later.

NASA held an invitational exhibit (jwst.nasa.gov/content/features/jwstArt/) of artists’ work who explored the telescope and imagined what some of those images might look like.

The Webb telescope features 18 hexagonal mirrors that unfold like a drop leaf table to a 21 foot span, reflecting light between them and then to one of four cameras

NNC invites you to paint, splatter, pour and illustrate your imagined vision on one of 18 hexagonal canvases to be combined in an exhibit at the center that will help educate and inspire others about the mission.

Here’s what’s involved:

Register: (www.signupgenius.com/go/8050544ABAE2CA5FA7-nurture2) registration limited to the first 18.
