Friday Art Night at the Museum: Dacha Crafts

Museum of the Earth

We have extended evening hours at the Museum of the Earth on First Friday Art Night, September 7, 2018—the Museum will be open until 8 pm! Admission to the Museum on Friday Art Nights (from 5 to 8 pm) is only $5.00.

Visit the Museum of the Earth's Gift shop to see Marina Gershon and Isaac Sharp artwork created from salvaged wood, decorated by cutting and burning, and added natural materials.. The Museum will be open for extended evening hours for this show in the Museum's Gift Shop. 

After spending many years building an eco-friendly home using salvaged materials, Marina Gershon and Isaac Sharp were inspired to create art from locally scavenged bits of nature. They use wood burning tools, dried foliage, mushrooms and oils in their experiments. Their original artwork aims to discover beauty in the unconventional world of creatures and plants. Their home is called the Dacha Project and was built with a collective of friends who live communally and engage in a variety of creative projects. They range from puppeteering and theater to farming and musical endeavors. The Dacha Project is a do-it-yourself, egalitarian and educational homestead that often invites the community in for tours, events and workshops. For more information about their art, find DachaCrafts on Facebook and visit DachaProject.com for updates about the homestead.

Light refreshments will be served, and the artists will be on hand to talk about their work. Admission to the show in the Museum's Gift Shop is free, the $5. evening admission rates apply to Museum exhibits. The artwork will be on display through the end of September.

While you are there, take the opportunity to enjoy an evening at the Museum of the Earth, which is open extended evening hours on Friday Art Nights. See over 100 skulls from tiny bird skulls to giant Triceratops and whale skulls in our new special exhibit "Secrets of the Skull: From Titanoboa to Tuatara". Learn how nature has shaped a complex structure to protect vertebrates' brain and sensory organs. Every vertebrate's skull is beautifully adapted for its unique role in the web of life. Join us to unlock the secrets of the skull.
