Astronomy Salon with the Royal Academy of Art
A team from the RAS were delighted to join the Royal Academy of Arts (RA) on the 5th September 2015 for a RA lates event called "Enchanted Cosmos", celebrating the work of Joseph Cornell.
During the event participants could view the exhibition, eat a Cornell inspired chocolate cake, make collages and get their faces painted with glitter!
The RAS welcomed the 600 visitors as they entered the RA by making comets in the portico.
We then hosted an Astronomy Salon in the Tondo foyer during which there were talks by Dr Marek Kukula and Dr Sheila Kanani, an opportunity to view star charts and maps with Dr Sian Prosser and time to hold meteorites and ask questions.
A great evening was had by all who attended and participated and we thoroughly enjoyed mixing astronomy and art for a special evening of outreach.
