Adult Night Special Event

Inspired by Nature: Sifting through Sand and Time

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM


The landscape of New Mexico truly creates our land of enchantment.  From the mountains to the lava flows, the geologic landscape is breath taking.  Come learn from Dr. Larry Crumpler, NMMNHS Research Curator of Volcanology and Space Science, how to read the tales hidden the layers of sediment and discover how our landscape has inspired artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe.


Then, a truly unique experience..."walk on the Moon." The Museum is one of only a few places to have a giant moon map on loan from NASA. New Mexico has long been involved in studying the geology of the Moon (and using New Mexico's volcanoes as analogs to lunar volcanism). We are the first to have the NASA Moon Map after its appearance on the National Mall in Washington DC to celebrate the Apollo 11 Anniversary. 


So...come and walk on the moon...and then create your own work of art with Moonlight Makes using sand art and succulents.
