The other Winter 2019 MCA exhibits: Andrew Jensdotter: Flak, - sculpture & painting Amanda Wachob: Tattoo artist uses a tattoo machine and ink to create art on canvas, paper, silk, fruit, and leather, in addition to human bodies.

SILENT SKY - Evergreen Players / THE BISTRO at Marshdale

SILENT SKY The true story of a woman who literally reached for the stars... When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love. Please RSVP AFTER you purchase your ticket & post a comment. (In order to ensure there is space for serious attendees RSVPs without a ticket confirmation may be removed.)
