Join us on August 18th for the opening reception of The Golden Record: Far Beyond Our Galaxy. Forty-one years after the launch of NASA’s Voyager vessels, ATHICA celebrates the legacy of the Golden Record in an inaugural exhibition at the new location in the Leathers Building. On view from August 18th to October 7th. 

The Golden Record exhibition is inspired by the images and sounds seared into the records affixed to the Voyager spacecraft. The exhibition features works in all media, including sound, video, interactive media, found and handmade materials. It reflects on the beautiful and daft hopefulness of the Golden Records going forth for 40,000 years to the next closest star.
