Dan Broten will give a curator talk during the opening reception of the exhibit on Wednesday, March 11, at 6:00 PM. He will discuss Karen Nyberg’s two missions into space, the making of the exhibit, as well as his enthusiasm for the history of space exploration. Broten has the professional distinction of photographing both of Nyberg’s launches: the space shuttle Discovery from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida in 2008 and the 2013 Soyuz from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan in 2013. The exhibit and talk are funded in part or in whole with monies from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage fund.
The exhibit can be viewed when the meeting room is open during library hours. The exhibit and artist talk are free and open to the public, sponsored by Douglas County Library and Viking Library System. Contact the library at 320-762-3014 for more information.
