Summer Solstice Celebration Today at the Art Museum

Museum visitors look at the sun through Ray Martin's filtered telescope, set up on the Art Museum terrace during last year's Summer Solstice.

After Wyoming's long winter, it's worth celebrating the start of summer and the longest day of the year! Join us today at the Art Museum for the annual Summer Solstice Celebration, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm. On the first day of summer, a special solar tube in the museum illuminates a silver dollar that is set in the center of the Rotunda Gallery at exactly noon. Ray Martin will also be set up on the terrace with his filtered solar telescope, allowing visitors the unique opportunity to view the sun themselves!

The Summer Solstice Celebration is free and open to the public. For more information, please call the education office at 307.766.3496.
