A Masterpiece Called Earth
First Friday art show on May 1
Artists (who are also UAF staff members, faculty and students) looked at satellite images from the U.S. Geological Survey's "Earth as Art" collection and reinterpreted them into paper collages, a smalti mosaic, felt work, a quilt, acrylics, water colors and much more. Just like the earth, there's a lot of texture to this show. There will be light refreshments.
About the inspiration: Realizing the beauty of satellite images, the USGS and NASA have selected certain satellite images for their aesthetic value and shared them with the public. From NASA: "They were created by printing visible and infrared data in colors visible to the human eye. Band combination and colors were chosen to optimize their dramatic appearance."
