Join us for a free artist talk inspired by artist Asad Raza’s public sculpture Orientation, installed on Wade Oval. The sculpture, which is made of materials gathered from Lake Erie, is a human-scale version of the 16th-century astronomical instruments at Jantar Mantar in Jaipur, India.

Asad Raza will discuss the astronomical and scientific history behind Orientation’s conception and realization with historian of astronomy Aviva Rothman of Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Museum of Natural History astronomers Nick Anderson and Peter Hedman. Seating is limited; registration is encouraged.
