Performance Art & Star Party
The Magdalena Ridge Observatory is hosting a special event with artist Chris Kallmyer at the observatory. A sound performer and artist, Kallmyer brings his installation piece "The Distance Makes Us Feel Closer." Enjoy art, sit and watch the sunset, and star gaze with our knowledgeable starguides. 'Distance Makes Us Feel Closer" is an immersive, mountaintop sound work. Beginning at dusk, listeners can sip hot tea, and experience spacious and faraway tones resounding across the landscape; Morse Code derived from local oral histories and astronomical data gathered by the observatory. This special performance is naturally inclusive, inviting listeners to hang out and notice sounds, sights, smells, greater landscape that stretches out from our perch in the high-desert. 6 p.m. to midnight.
