Opening May 31st 2015:
“Dust,” a new exhibition, celebrates our fifth year of existence by delving deep into this most ubiquitous substance. Dust coats every surface in our homes, congeals in our nasal passages, feeds microscopic mites on our skin, floats across continents, settles onto the ocean floors, and rains down from the sky as a diaphanous reminder of the origins of the cosmos. Samples of this cosmic dust, as well as dust samples from around the world and from unique moments in history will be on display, alongside a condensed visual history of dust removal, microscopic and gigantic views of dust, and many other dust-related displays. At the opening day celebration Sunday May 31st, from 3-7pm, local animatrix Meredith Holch and famed Circus Amok founder Jennifer Miller will play original songs about dust, special guests from Canada will present a new performance piece, there will be Dust dances and Dust manifestos, snacks and beverages will be served.
