Plenty of Stargazing at the Opening Reception for Our Origins

Some of the earliest humans theorized about our origins by gazing up at the cosmos.

Tonight, we will continue this time-honored experience at the opening reception for the museum’s current exhibition, Our Origins, which attempts to trace our shared human past beyond recorded history.

Join us for one (or all) of three opening events:

4pm: Sit in on a gallery discussion between exhibiting artists Alison Carey, Ken Fandell, Jennifer Ray and Alison Ruttan, which will be moderated by curator Allison Grant.

5 – 7pm: Mingle with exhibiting artists, enjoy free hors d’oeuvres and take in a public viewing of Our Origins.

8pm: Join us in Grant Park for stargazing with astronomer Joe Guzman.

Admission for each event is free and open to the public. No RSVP necessary. For more information, visit our website, check in with our Facebook page or give us a call at 312-369-7104.
