To celebrate the opening of the Carlos Museum’s new Ancient Greek galleries, the Museum and Emory’s Department of Physics invite you to a special evening of gallery and galaxy hopping.

You can begin at either the Carlos Museum, any time between 5:30 to 9:00PM. Or, you can start your evening with a Greek Skies planetarium show at the Emory Planetarium.

Planetarium shows last half an hour; you can attend at 6:30, 7:30 or 8:30 PM. Seating is limited.

In the Planetarium, Dr. Rick Williamon will tell the timeless stories of Greek gods and heroes as they unfold in the night sky.

In the Museum, you’ll be able to see some of these same myths and tales depicted in ancient works of art.

Refreshments fit for a god or goddess will be on sale by the Astronomy Club (to benefit future programs).

On the Quad, you’ll find guides in ancient Greek costumes to ferry you back and forth between the Museum and the Planetarium.

We hope you, your family and your friends will be able to join us for this evening of myths and merriment.
