I'm giving a tour just for MeFites of my exhibition "Small Steps, Giant Leaps: Apollo 11 at Fifty", which combines landmarks from the history of science with artifacts used in the Apollo mission. Afterward, join me (optionally) for a $5 screening of Hidden Figures at the Harvard Film Archive.
The challenge is to make the worst piece of art in the allotted time. Worst art pieces will be rewarded with unconstructive criticism, guffaws and prizes. Plus bragging rights. Hosted by Converge Denver and Denver Public Library. All supplies provided. [more inside]
The End Of All Things (not the Big One) comes to Seattle and jscalzi will be reading from his latest book at the Central library.
The last time I put on a show in our main exhibition space, I invited MetaFilter to come see it. It was a lot of fun, so I'd like to do so once again, to see "Starry Messengers: Signs and Science from the Skies." [more inside]
