The Evolving Universe
- How was the universe created?
How has it changed over time?
How do we know?
Through compelling and beautiful photographs, visitors will learn about how Smithsonian scientists study the far reaches of space and the evolution of the universe. This exhibition was developed by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and the National Museum of Natural History where it will be on view until July 2013. The original exhibition was funded by The Windland Smith Rice Nature’s Best Photography Fund.
We can never see the universe as it is right now, only how it was in the past. In this exhibition, visitors will journey from the here and now of Earth to beyond our galaxy, traveling back through time and out into space. The very nearest star system, Alpha Centauri, is four light years away. When we gaze at it in the sky, the light hitting our eyeballs left it four years ago, so we’re seeing Alpha Centauri as it was in 2006. In this sense our telescopes are also time machines: the most distant galaxies we study are billions of light years away, and we are seeing them as they were before the Earth was formed.
Through stunning and “far out” photographs, visitors will learn how Smithsonian scientists study the far reaches of space and the evolution of the universe. The Evolving Universe is a collaboration with the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and the National Museum of Natural History. Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibit Service (SITES) Exhibition description and tour schedule is available at the SITES website.

Remembering: Quilts of Patriotism & Quilts of Valor
- August 28-October 9, 2016 - Quilt National is a biennial juried competition dedicated to the promotion of the contemporary art quilt. Its focus is to provide the viewer with a visual presentation of innovative trends in the medium of layered and stitched fabric. The works in the exhibit display a reverence for the lessons taught by the makers of heritage quilts whose works hold fast to the traditional methods of piecing and patching. At the same time, however, the Quilt National artist is intrigued by the challenge of expanding the boundaries of traditional quilt making by utilizing the newest materials and technologies. These innovative works generate strong emotional responses in the viewer while at the same time fulfilling the creative need of the artist to make a totally individual statement.
The Quilt National 2015: Collection B exhibit consists of 25 quilts from quilt makers from all over the world. Quilt National ‘15 is produced and circulated by The Dairy Barn Arts Center, Athens, OH. Visit www.dairybarn.org for more information about The Dairy Barn Arts Center. Approximately 25 Kansas quilts will also be exhibited to showcase the talent, and creativity of Kansas quilt makers. If you would like to be included on the mailing list to display a quilt during this exhibition, please contact museum staff.
