Art from 2023 showcase

The Richardson ISD Visual Arts Department offers all RISD students K-12 the unique opportunity to create and submit a piece of art to be showcased in the Green Mezzanine Gallery each year. Myron Stennett, Director of Visual Arts for RISD, developed this showcase to boost the enthusiasm and motivation of students interested in making art and push them to create refined works. 

Through challenging curricular art activities aligned with the standards of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Fine Arts and the school’s art curriculum, students are provided a venue to showcase their skills as well as their understanding of process and creative development which supports the goals and skill level of all students. 

A First Fridays reception is scheduled for February 2nd from 6:00 to 8:00 PM in the Green Mezzanine Gallery. Enjoy lite bites and wander the gallery with your fellow local art lovers!

Sensing Deep Space

There's only TWO MORE WEEKENDS to catch Sensing Deep Space: Pandora's Cluster in the Bank of America Hall!

Drawing inspiration from the extraordinary Pandora's Cluster, a galactic collision of several galaxy clusters located approximately 4 billion light-years away, the installation incorporates cutting-edge technologies to create a multisensory experience. Astronomers have been studying this region for decades, using Hubble, Spitzer, and Chandra telescopes, and most recently James Webb Space Telescope. The James Webb Space Telescope and its unprecedented observational capabilities revolutionizes our deep space exploration. It offers humanity a portal into the inaccessible deep space, allowing the creation of a spellbinding installation that shatters the boundaries of earthly experience, enabling visitors to traverse the untraversable. Pandora's Cluster, a realm too distant and unfathomable for human feet to tread, is now attainable through the exquisite marriage of artistry and science.

This free exhibit is open Thursday through Saturday from 1:00-7:00pm and Sunday from 1:00-5:00pm and runs until February 4th! Registration is required. Visit the Ticket Office the day of your visit or register on our website: www.EisemannCenter.com.

Please forward and share this newsletter to anyone interested in the arts.
