Margaret Pezalla-Granlund, Journey to the Surface of Mars

Burnet Gallery at Le Meridien Chambers

Journey to the Surface of Mars

Join artist Margaret Pezalla-Granlund for a visual journey to the surface of Mars, guided by the photographs, drawings, and writings of Earl C. Slipher, an astronomer at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona, who made hundreds of thousands of images of Mars. Over decades of observation, Slipher observed a mysterious system of canals on the surface of the Red Planet. The waterways criss-cross the planetary deserts, channeling melting ice from the Martian poles through the parched planet. What are these mysterious canals? Why do they appear? Join us for tea, cookies, and imaginative speculation.

This salon will complement the exhibition, ExtraMundane, on view in the Burnet Gallery.
