Part of my new eclipse artwork is being exhibited at WREN Gallery (www.wrenworks.org) in NH titled "Total Eclipse of the Art" in order to highlight and celebrate the April 8th Total Eclipse happening across the US and in NH. Exhibit 3/8 - 4/12, Opening March 8th, 5-7pm
Starting prep work again for our next eclipse balloon launch during the April 8th total eclipse. Our team will be traveling to northern NH for our 30-hour eclipse campaign with the National Eclipse Ballooning Project. We have also started prepping for the Museum of the White Mountains Exhibition; curating with a group of PSU students from the NEBP team who enrolled in a Special Topics Eclipse Exhibition course. And finally creating some artwork from images sourced during the October eclipse in NM.

Our trip and mission was a success! After many practice sessions, Art Professors Kimberly Ritchie and Erin Sweeney, and Meteorology Professor Eric Kelsey lead two teams of 17 students across a variety of majors to New Mexico in October for a week to launch weather balloons during a 30-hour campaign to record data during the solar eclipse. The project was funded through NASA and focuses on bringing awareness of STEM. The faculty and students will be traveling again to Northern New Hampshire in April to launch during the total eclipse. An exhibition at the Museum of the White Mountains of the data collected and artwork created in response will be showcased next Fall.
