Poster advertising an exhibit currently at DMNS
This beautiful exhibit features Colorado University-affiliated scientists and artists. I have been back several times and taken photos but because of the reflection of lights in the gallery where they are located, my photos do not do them justice. Instead, go here to see the photos and explanations of their origins.
Since I have been volunteering at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science I have more opportunities to walk through the different galleries. It is such a wonderful place of opportunities for knowledge, new experiences and entertainment. Another site to check out is the trailer of Hurricane on the Bayou. It is possible to choose broadband or dial-up and watch it. If you have the possibility to see the entire IMAX movie, I highly recommend it. Several months before Hurricane Katrina hit, The IMAX crew began filming several musicians who were doing benefit concerts to raise money to save the disappearing wetlands in Louisiana. After the hurricane hit, they continued to roll film as it brought home their point that the wetlands had once been a buffer against hurricanes and were no longer able to be a deterrant. It is a powerful film--and the music is spectacular.
