Out-of-this-world gallery exhibit

It doesn’t look like a spaceship, but the large lecture hall, Room 1590, in Building 15, will zoom you through the galaxy via “When Worlds Erupt,” the space art of Merry Edenton-Wooten.

This exhibition is an intriguing collection of oil paintings she produced in1986 that explore the possibility of eruptions on various celestial bodies.

“We were going to have a planetarium show of ‘When Worlds Erupt’ and I had to imagine eruptions or lava flows or vents spewing material in order to have worlds erupting,” Edenton-Wooten commented about the impetus for her images.
