The alignment and shadowing of celestial bodies has long been a source of wonder and disruption to our natural order. The eclipse has been both feared and celebrated for centuries. The phenomena have inspired folklore and mythology in many cultures. It has symbolized omens of both misfortune and blessings throughout human history. The oldest recorded eclipse possibly dates back to 3340 B.C.E. exemplified with the discovery of a series of spiral-shaped and circular petroglyphs found in Ireland. For as long as humans have looked to the heavens in awe the eclipse has been a part of our stories, traditions and sacraments. This art exhibit will creatively explore the juxtaposition of exquisiteness and disorder that the eclipse ensues through visual art.
