SAM TALKS: When Art and Astronomy Converge

14 June

Meteorites at SAM!

Come join us for a free, family friendly event at SAM as you hear about how art and astronomy converge at SAM on Tuesday 14 June at 6.30pm. 

Learn about the creative process of James Geurts’ Trajectories: Orbiting Bodies Meet, a neon installation inspired by the Murchison Meteorite and displayed on SAM's level 4 terrace (pictured above).

The Astronomical Society of Victoria (Shepparton branch), will give a presentation of meteorites and (weather permitting) visitors will have the opportunity to look at the night sky around SAM!

About the Astronomical Society of Victoria (Shepparton Branch)

Founded in 1922, the Astronomical Society of Victoria (ASV) is the largest non-profit society in the southern hemisphere for people interested in astronomy.

The Shepparton section of the ASV resulted from the advocacy and persistence of Aziz Bhatti and his children, who wanted to share their passion for astronomy with like-minded community members. The current president of the Shepparton section of the ASV is Michael Goodwin.

This program is organised and run by our SAM Ambassador. The SAM Ambassador program is an arts traineeship for emerging young creatives to engage and grow professionally with SAM. 

The SAM Ambassador program is funded by the William Buckland Foundation.
