Lightbox Gallery Talk: Coloring the Universe


Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Throughout the Cambridge Science Festival (April 15–24), join us each day in the Lightbox Gallery at 12:30pm to explore the science of light, looking, and conservation.

About today’s program:
Pink planets and green galaxies? Is space really so colorful? Get a behind-the-scenes tour of our vibrant universe from Kimberly Arcand, visualization lead for NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory. With data from the Chandra, Spitzer, and Hubble space telescopes, we’ll look at what goes into the kaleidoscope of color in astronomical images.

Can’t make it to the gallery talk? An interactive project related to the theme discussed in the talk will be on view all that day in the Lightbox Gallery.

This event will take place in the Lightbox Gallery, Level 5.

Free with museums admission. This talk is limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before the talk, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.

Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museums staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
