Harris Branch Library Hosts Art and Artifacts
From May 1 to June 9, 2012, the Northern Indiana Pastel Society will coordinate an art exhibit by its members that features the transit of Venus and the curious realm of exo-planets. The call for art invites members to use ideas such as Venus, planets, sun, moon, stars, space, sky, sunset, new worlds, habitable planets or related themes.
Concurrently, the exhibit cases flanking the library entrance foyer will house historical artifacts from previous transits of Venus, including original contents from the US Naval Observatory (USNO) expeditions.
The two events support a collection of transit of Venus attractions, known as TROVE, in the Michiana region. Plan a visit to to this and other TROVE sites for a complete transit of Venus experience.
For the location, contact information, and hours of operation, see the Harris Branch at http://www.mphpl.org/newSite/general/contact_branch.html.
