The Williamson Gallery at ArtCenter College of Design celebrates the Great American Eclipse taking place on August 21, 2017, with the aptly named ECLIPSE exhibit, probing the contemporary art, science, history and culture of solar eclipses.

In addition to works of contemporary art by Lita Albuquerque, Russell Crotty, Stephen Dankner, Rosemarie Fiore and Jacqueline Woods, as well as historical paintings by Howard Russell Butler (1856-1934), the exhibit will include astronomical artifacts from the Lick Observatory and Carnegie Observatories, historical artifacts sourced from the Huntington Library, and projections from NASA sources.
