EARTHQUAKE: EVIDENCE OF A RESTLESS PLANET
CALIFORNIA ACADEMY OF SCIENCES, SAN FRANCISCO, CA:
Don’t miss Earthquake, a major new exhibit and planetarium show, opening May 26, 2012. Take a kinetic journey toward understanding these super seismic phenomena and how they fit into the larger story of our ever-changing Earth. Our planetarium show, Evidence of a Restless Planet, will launch you on a breathtaking tour through space and time. Fly over the San Andreas fault before diving into the planet’s interior, travel back in time to witness both the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and the break-up of Pangaea 200 million years ago, and much more.

VERONIKA BECKH, ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
CORNING MUSEUM OF GLASS, CORNING, NY:
A Berlin-based artist, Beckh has exhibited extensively in the United States and Europe. Her work invites viewers to disconnect from the noise and chaos of everyday life and to find light, tranquility, and contemplation. Beckh used her residency at The Studio to expand her practice beyond smaller objects and ensembles toward room installations. She experimented with scale, combining blown pieces with float glass and mirror to integrate with and respond to space, light, reflections, and the viewer.

SURVIVING THERESIENSTADT:THE MICHAEL GRUENBAUM COLLECTION
UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM:
Judith Cohen, the Museum’s photo archivist, explains in this episode of Curators’ Corner how a scrapbook and “memory book” from the Michael Gruenbaum Collection provide a rare view into life in Theresienstadt, the Nazis’ “model” camp-ghetto.
