“A New Moon Rises” is on display in the TTU Museum

The moon is not the same place astronauts last set foot on it. “A New Moon Rises”, a traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian, features 51 breathtaking large format photographs of the lunar surface taken between 2009 and 2015 by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Cameras.

This exhibit will be on view at the Museum of Texas Tech, 3301 Fourth St., through Sunday.

These images show a dynamic place with impact craters, recent volcanic activity, and a crust that has been broken by the shrinking of an interior that is still cooling. The images offer unique views of the lunar surface that not only help answer questions about the formation and evolution of the moon, but also reveal stunning landforms that are both strange and familiar.

“A New Moon Rises” was founded by the National Air and Space Museum and Arizona State University and is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service for Travel.

The museum’s opening hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, 1-5 a.m. and closed on monday.

New exhibition opened in the TTU Museum

This Empty World is a new exhibit opening May 23 at the Texas Tech University Museum, 3301 Fourth St..

The exhibition deals with the escalating destruction of the natural world by humanity and shows a world in which, overwhelmed by the runaway development, there is no longer any space in which animals can survive. The people in the photos are also often helplessly carried away by the relentless tide of progress.

Each picture is a combination of two moments weeks apart, almost all from the exact same locked camera position.

The museum’s opening hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, 1-5 a.m. and closed on monday.

The opening for Crockett is the singer-songwriter Jesse Daniel.

The TTU museum houses “whereabouts and hiding places”.

The Texas Tech University Museum, 3301 Fourth St., is showing the “Wherabouts and Hideouts” exhibit through May 29th.

The exhibition is organized by the Artist Printmaker Research Collection (AP / RC), a division of the Art Collection, and includes a variety of works of art created since the 1960s. Among them, artists have paid much attention to what many refer to as the “built environment,” that is, the buildings and structures that humans have built and installed on the surface of the earth.

Buildings are flooding our planet. They reflect what is important to us, who we are. When these buildings rise and later turn into ruins, they record human activity and cultural expressions.

Four AP / RC artists from Texas and New Mexico turned their attention to regionally different views of our “built environment” and gave us a glimpse into the unparalleled collections of the Museum of Texas Tech University and each artist’s perspective on the buildings we work with Life.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. The museum is open from Thursday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
