Now Open on Wednesdays+Christina Seely's Lecture

Starting today, we are expanding our hours to include Wednesdays from 12-5. Come by and see us!

And don't forget, photographer Christina Seely will be lecturing at CCAS tomorrow, Thursday January 13th, at 7pm. The lecture is free to current CCAS members and students and general admission is $5.

Seely's current show at CCAS, Lux, consists of nighttime photographs of some of the world's largest metropolises, demonstrating the vast amount of artificial light emitted by large human settlements. Based on a NASA map of the night earth (see it here), Lux focuses on cities in the United States, Western Europe, and Japan.

Writes Seely, "For most of human history, man-made light has signified hope and progress within local and global arenas. In this project, light also paradoxically denotes regression or transgression--an index of the complex negative human impacts on the health and future of the planet."

Come to the lecture tomorrow night at 7pm to hear more about this intriguing project.
