New Meetup: Night at the Museum - Photography and Lasers

Announcing a new Meetup for Cape Ann Photography Excursion (CAPE) Group!

What: Night at the Museum - Photography and Lasers

When: December 26,[masked]:00 PM

Museum of Science
1 Science Park
Boston, MA 02114

I thought I'd throw this up there in case anyone is interested. I thought it might be fun as a group but it's certainly a good take for individuals as well.

The Museum of Science has several cool exhibits running during the holiday season, one of which is a photography exhibit called "Running the Numbers: Portraits of Mass Consumption" in which photographer Chris Jordan's large-format prints, assembled from thousands of smaller photographs, dramatically translate the raw language of statistics into powerful images of global mass culture that we can respond to emotionally. Seeing the cumulative impact of individual actions through this talented artist's lens awakens us to the enormity of our personal decisions.

Check out this sample of his work which depicts 28,000 42-gallon barrels, the amount of oil consumed in the United States every two minutes (equal to the flow of a medium-sized river).

There is a laser light show featuring the music of Queen running in the planetarium. Colorful laser lights accompany music from Queen, the legendary 1980s rock band. Songs featured in this show include "Another One Bites the Dust," "Bohemian Rapsody," "Somebody to Love," and "Killer Queen."

Showing at 7:30 PM, this will be one of the last shows in the planetarium before they close down for renovations for an entire year.

There are two plans available - separate or combo.

Exhibit Hall (includes the cost of the photography exhibit) - $20.00
Laser Show $6.50

Exhibit Halls + any 1 show $24.50

So the plan will be to meet at 7:00 PM at the museum, see the laser show then go in to view the photography exhibit. You can plan to do one, the other or both. After, we'll see if anyone is up for a light dinner.

At this posting, there are tickets available to the laser show. Everyone will be on their own for purchasing tickets. You can purchase them online ahead of time by going to the Museum of Science website. Or, you can wait until the night of but there's a risk they may sell out. It's up to you.

The museum website is above.

Hope you can make it.
