Moon Craters, Exoplanets, and Galactic Revolutions
with Bettina Forget



View All Items

Join artist and scholar Bettina Forget for a talk bridging art, space science, and the timely topic of women’s representation.
Of the 1,605 named craters on the moon, only 29 are named after women — an issue that Forget has tackled in a series of works called Women With Impact. She’ll discuss the underrepresentation of women in the historical science record through the lens of this piece, which fuses drawing and selenographic research.
Forget will also share insights gleaned from her project Exoplanet Zoo, created while she served as artist-in-residence at the Mont-Mégantic Observatory. Using 3D printers Forget produced exoplanet sculptures that she displays in a “Cabinet of Curiosities,” evoking Victorian-era science.

This talk is free with the purchase of Museum Admission.
