Meet Barbara Page
Opening Reception with Barbara Page
Thursday | November 7th
Meet nationally-renowned Trumansburg-based artist Barbara Page, as she joins us for the opening reception for the temporary exhibit: Rock of Ages, Sands of Time: A Look Back with Barbara Page. Visitors will learn more about the iconic mural that greets them as they travel down the ramp in the Museum of the Earth as we celebrate our 10th Anniversary this year. Rock of Ages, Sands of Time is a series of 544 three-dimensional paintings that function as a visible metaphor for an eon, or 550 million years, of Earth’s past. Each tile represents one million years of history, featuring fossil flora and fauna in chronological order and at true scale.
Barbara Page began the masterpiece before the Museum opened in 2003, and this exhibit will feature her notes, sketches, and draft illustrations.
