There’s something special about visiting the museum in the quiet, after hours.
The High Desert Museum is offering up a chance to experience that special feeling with an “After Hours” event.
Starting this Friday night, November 18, the High Desert Museum After Hours is a chance to grab a drink, visit with friends and view the indoor exhibits at the Museum.
Like a First Friday, this event is from 5-9 pm and costs $3 for members and $7 for non-members and with a no-host bar.
Come enjoy the museum and all of its exhibits including:
The New Ansel Adams: Masterworks exhibit
This exhibition features a collection of 48 works by Ansel Adams (1902-1984). These photographs represent about two-thirds of a selection Adams made late in his life to serve as a succinct representation of his life’s work. Called “The Museum Set,” these works reveal the importance Adams placed on the drama and splendor of natural environments that might not, to the ordinary passing hiker, have revealed their secrets.
October 22, 2016 through January 8, 2017
The Buzzsaw Sharks of Long Ago
The Buzzsaw Sharks of Long Ago exhibition blends art, science and humor. This dynamic exhibit has something for the whole family, featuring kids’ activities, an array of fossils and a short video, Troll’s original artworks, life-sized sculptures by paleo-sculptor Gary Staab, music and more. Amazing things can happen when science and art merge; come and experience them for yourself!
