Opening Reception: Saturday, November 3, 2018, 5-7pm
Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower presents “Lateral Distance,” an exhibition by artist Amy Wetsch, on view Saturdays from October 27, 2018 through February 23, 2019 from 11am to 4pm. Wetsch, a current MFA candidate at MICA’s Mount Royal School of Art, created works in reaction to her recent experience interning with a team of planetary scientists at Johns Hopkins University.
The “Dragonfly” mission is proposed by Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, which was recently selected as finalist for NASA funding. The mission would initiate an up-close and personal study of Titan by sending a robotic drone to map out its surface composition. Interpreting the extreme science of planetary exploration, Wetsch has created a large-scale installation, sculptural objects and drawings that aim to capture her imagined essence of Titan, as well as the wonder and grandeur of our solar system.
