The new SHU’s Discovery Science Center & Planetarium is a place for everyone to learn, grow and imagine. Discovery is providing hands on STEAM learning on three floors of exhibits that resonates with our visitor’s natural curiosity & an ageless love of learning. Explore topography and dinosaurs, learn what keeps a plane in the air, keep your balance on our indoor junior ropes course, and bandage up your soft stuffed friends in our Teddy Bear Triage area. And with a state-of-the-art planetarium, the sky is no longer the limit! Join us to fly to the outermost parts of space.

Event: Abstractions: Anne Marchand

Beginning Monday, November 15
Inspired by the Hubble space telescope photographs, Anne Marchand’s work is an exploration of the surprisingly colorful and frequently fluid- like state of the universe. Her mixed media pieces combine texture, color & negative space to convey the dichotomy between the chaos of entropy and the cohesion of nature.
