This event will be held in College’s Community Room located on the second floor of Egtvedt Hall. “Traces of the Cosmos” is part of the College’s on-going storytelling series called, “Your Story Matters”.

Jan states this about her “Traces of the Cosmos” exhibition, “this is my second universe-inspired series. The topic is clearly too large for one series! This series consists of 12 four by two foot oil paintings; four painted obelisks, two with surprises; two free-standing mirrors with curving space-time built in; and a four foot diameter ball painted with interconnected earth/universe themes...”
The public is invited to attend the Artist Talk on February 1st from 12:00 PM until 1:00 PM and the Opening on Friday, February 3rd from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM .m.
