Our next general meeting will be held Tuesday, February 12, 2019, 7:00-9:00PM, at the Adler Planetarium.

Painted Sky - Art of the Cosmos.
Our speaker will be space artist, Mark Paternostro. Mark will describe his journey as an astronomical artist, a visual timeline of his work from publishing to planetarium and beyond. It is about space science, astronomy, and seeing the universe through the lens of art and astrophysics.

Mark Paternostro
Mark Paternostro studied art at the University of Wisconsin and later taught at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. In 1976 he joined Astronomy Magazine as resident staff artist. He also spent 30 years as resident artist, art director, and sky show director at the Adler Planetarium. Mark's work has been published in numerous books and magazines worldwide, including Isaac Asimov's Library of the Universe and has appeared on the television programs Nightline and PBS Nova.
