A lifetime captured in a GIF. Sculptor Katharine Lane Weems wrote in her diaries for 60 years, from when she a young girl with a passion for art and dogs into a mature woman and accomplished wildlife sculptor.
Her diaries will be on exhibit in “A Day in the Life: Artists’ Diaries from the Archives of American Art." The exhibit opens Friday, September 26 in our Lawrence A. Fleischman Gallery.

Resist, keep resisting, and find the center of your support in yourself.

The Eta Carinae regions of the Carina Nebula
This panoramic view combines a new image of the field around the Wolf–Rayet star WR 22 in the Carina Nebula with an earlier picture of the region around the unique star Eta Carinae in the heart of the nebula. The picture was created from images taken with the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile.
