Red/Blue Glasses Revisited: A 3-D Journey Through Space and Time
In the 1940s, the Hayden Planetarium produced a series of 3-D
illustrations to explain celestial navigation. This series of images
inspired the career of artist Gerald Marks, internationally renowned
for his 3-D installations.  This evening blends yesterday's images
with today's digital technology for a stellar 3-D slide show of inner
and outer space. 3-D Glasses will be provided.
