Starry Messenger: Galileo’s Vision in 21st Century Art

September 25, 2009 - December 12, 2009

Named after Galileo’s revolutionary treatise, Starry Messenger brought together the work of eight notable and emerging contemporary American artists  inspired by celestial phenomena—Vija Celmins, Thierry W. Despont, Elen A. Feinberg, Jonathan Feldschuh, Eva Lee, Carol Prusa, Josh Simpson, and Sallie Wolf. Reproductions of Galileo’s drawings and text panels describing the impact of the great scientist’s art training upon his astronomical discoveries were included within the multi-media display.
