Join us for this unique Creative Mixer featuring a special presentation by Abrams Planetarium director Dr. Shannon Schmoll. Shannon will share the many ways the planetarium has been used as a digital immersive theater.

Learn how art is already used in the planetarium to teach astronomy from the constellations, to artist's representations of astronomical objects. Moving beyond the astronomy, we will see how the digital system can be manipulated to create music extravaganzas through sharing some of the planetarium's Pink Floyd show. Plus, you'll see how 360 photographs, video and other media have been used to showcase architecture, and ancient and modern art.

Shannon will also explore the various collaborations the planetarium has done through the MSU Bridge Artist-in-Residency Program and beyond. 

This mixer is sponsored in partnership with
Abrams Planetarium and is free of charge.
