Stars have always guided us across the world. Along the way, myriad stories have been inspired by seeing clusters of stars as constellations that make up an image. We may not be able to see all the stars in our own galaxy, but we can imagine that they are endless! Using cardboard, wood and light, create your own constellation, celebrating your favorite nature scene.
Saturday: Free, and admission to the grounds is free until noon.
