Photographer and filmmaker Harun Mehmedinovic will share time lapse films of the night sky from his Skyglow Project, and videos from other artists exploring the night through time lapse photography. This one-of-a-kind event will be a visual spectacle celebrating the night. Many of the films from Skyglow showcase Northern Arizona and the Grand Canyon. Doors open at 7:00pm; the NightVisions art exhibition will be open for viewing.
The Skyglow Project explores the history and mythology of celestial observation, the proliferation of electrical outdoor lighting that spurred the rise of the phenomena known as “skyglow,” and the Dark Sky Movement that’s fighting to reclaim the night skies. Skyglow refers to the brightness of the night sky in a built-up area as a result of light pollution. Learn more at skyglowproject.com.
