First Friday Art Night

First Friday Art Night - Jaime Hazard

October 5, 2018 | 5 - 8 pm
Museum of the Earth's Gift Shop

We have extended evening hours at the Museum of the Earth on First Friday Art Night, October 5, 2018—the Museum will be open until 8 pm! Admission to the Museum on Friday Art Nights (from 5 to 8 pm) is only $5.00.

Visit the Museum of the Earth's Gift Shop to see Jaime Hazard's photographs from Yellowstone National Park. The Museum will be open for extended evening hours.

Join Jaime Hazard for a photographic journey of Yellowstone National Park. Jaime spent several summers surveying the Park's wetlands to record changes in amphibian populations and when she wasn't wrangling frogs, she was hiking, drawing and taking lots of photos. Although it's been a few years since she's been back to Yellowstone, she thought that now would be a meaningful time to share a field biologist's perspective on one of our many national treasures. Enjoy her photos of standing on rocky ledges overlooking waterfalls, or glancing up from catching tadpoles to find that her field partner had been replaced by a moose, or getting chased by a pair of ridiculously cute river otters. You might even be inspired to get out there and do the same! Nonetheless, the wilderness is calling. Immerse yourself or just dip a toe in. Either way, don't separate yourself from the beauty that awaits you. 

Light refreshments will be served, and the artist will be on hand to talk about her work. Admission to the show in the Museum's Gift Shop is free, special evening admission rates apply to Museum exhibits. The artwork will be on display through the end of November.

While you are there, take the opportunity to enjoy an evening at the Museum of the Earth, which is open extended evening hours on Friday Art Nights. See over 100 skulls from tiny bird skulls to giant Triceratops and whale skulls in our new special exhibit "Secrets of the Skull: From Titanoboa to Tuatara". Learn how nature has shaped a complex structure to protect vertebrates' brain and sensory organs.
