The 2017 NightVisions exhibition opens to the public with a reception this Thursday, June 15th. The reoccurring exhibition seeks to re-open our positive connections to the natural night and to bridge the divide separating artistic from scientific perception, promoting the idea that science and art are two intertwined aspects of human experience.
Mark your calendar! Two events have been added in conjunction with the exhibition in honoring the night sky. Both closing events will take place at the Coconino Center for the Arts and are free and open to the public.

The NightVisions VI exhibition will be open for viewing during both events.
