Man on the Moon: 50th Anniversary of the Lunar Landing Exhibit
July 20, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - September 9, 2019 @ 12:00 am
EXHIBITION at the BANKHEAD THEATER GALLERY
July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo landing on the moon. The Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center will be mounting an exhibition of the moon landing that will have large and impactful visual images. The goal of the exhibit is to teach youth and adults about the historical significance of the Apollo Moon Landing, and the science and technology required for space travel. Through art, the large format historical photos from NASA and the interactive family-friendly activities will powerfully convey the first manned mission to land on the moon and return safely to Earth.
The Man on the Moon exhibit will be on display in the Bankhead Theater Gallery July 10 through September 9, 2019. The exhibit is free and open to the public and will offer interactive activities that teach youth and adults about scientific discovery and technological advancement. The exhibit is a part of Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center’s arts education outreach program and aligns with our mission to offer a broad range of arts opportunities and experiences to engage our diverse community. Last year, we served more than 31,000 students through our arts education outreach programs and public events such as this exhibit. Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center is an independent non-profit arts organization and relies upon sponsors to help bring important educational opportunities to the community.
The Opening Reception for this exhibit is on July 20 from 1-3 pm. It is free and open to the public. The Tri-Valley Stargazers will be on hand on Tuesday July 9 from 7-9pm and August 6 from 7-9 pm with telescopes at the ready for the public to view the moon. The Gallery will be open and free for the public. The Closing Reception is Sunday, Sept 8 from 4-6 pm. The Gallery is also open to the public Mondays through Wednesdays from 12-4 pm and for ticketed patrons during performances.
