Eclipses and Astronomical Phenomena in Art History

Andrew Hershberger, Professor
BGSU School of Art

Eclipses and varied astronomical phenomena have inspired many artists over time, including painters, sculptors, photographers, and architects. Deep connections exist between viewing eclipses and the visual arts, perhaps beginning with the camera obscura, an optical predecessor of all photographic and digital cameras. This presentation will explore related art works by both representational and abstract artists.

6:30-7:15 Planetarium Show
7:30-8:30 Public Lecture

The lecture portion of this event will also be livestreamed. Join the Eclipse Speakers Series livestream here.  To watch the livestream at our BGSU Firelands campus, join us in 107 Foundation Hall.
