Reptile Rendezvous, our most loved family day, was a great success. This event highlighted the slithery and scaly members of our planet and educated visitors, young and old, about what exactly these amazing creatures do for us and for the environments they inhabit. Our goal was and still is to change the phrase, “Any good snake is a dead snake,” into, “Snakes are vital to our existence”.
If you and/or your family are fans of Bug Day or Feathered Frenzy, then you are in luck! The Museum of Arts and Sciences (MAS) is hosting the first annual ‘Feathers and Feelers’ event on June 13, 2015 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Previously, MAS hosted two separate events showcasing birds and bugs, but now these two hugely popular days have been combined into one extraordinary event. ‘Feathers and Feelers’ will offer guests a fun environment where they can learn about birds and insects in a family-oriented atmosphere.
The MAS has invited many renowned organizations and specialists to come help make this event spectacular!
Mammals of all ages are invited to come enjoy a full day of events. Museum visitors can meet the newest members of the Museum’s mammal family, quiz our experts, play games, create art, and taste some interesting treats at our Road Side Café.
The Museum of Arts and Sciences has invited a leading vertebrate paleontologist to shed new light on “Ziggy,” its 40-million-year-old Zygorhiza whale fossil and one of Georgia’s most valuable treasures. A public lecture is planned for February 26, 2015, at 7PM. Currently, the Museum classifies its Ziggy as genus zygorhiza, a subfamily of the dorudontinae species of ancient whales. A great deal of new scientific research has been uncovered in recent years about the dorudontinae species of ancient whales, which may impact the Museum’s educational programming. In February, the Museum will bring Dr. Mark Uhen, one of the nation’s leading vertebrate paleontologists, to Macon to review the fossil and consider the need for a reclassification of Ziggy from Zygorhiza to Dorudon serratus.
Slechta’s art process is a simple one: light = color. It is the basic premise of how we perceive our natural world, only with Slechta’s art; there is a very specific place and time of this occurrence. John Cage once said, “There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear.” In Slechta’s photograms, that principle is turned into moments of transience.
