Great Minds Panel Discussion November 11th

The Lights in the Sky Are Stars: Looking, Seeing, and Knowing in Art, Astrophysics and Photography

// Saturday, November 11 / 4-6 PM / FREE
/ Bolinas Community Center / $10 suggested donation //

Moderated by John Weber, Founding Director UC Santa Cruz Institute of the Arts and Sciences, Arts Division, with panelists: Tony Misch, Director of the Lick Observatory Historical Collections; Charles Lindsay, artist and NASA’s SETI Artist in Residence Founding Director; Michael Light, artist; Don Jolley, Bolinas Stinson School science teacher and artist; and Linda Connor, artist.

From before the dawn of recorded history, humans have looked up into the skies and wondered what is out there. Artists have depicted the heavens, and astronomers
have probed the celestial universe. This dialogue brings contemporary artists together with perspectives from astrophysics to consider the Bolinas Museum’s current exhibition and what the differing kinds of images and artifacts in it tell us about our desire to understand the universe. What does a drawing tell us that a photograph doesn’t? How is a photograph by an astronomer different from one by an artist? Join us as we probe the in night and learn what inspired these artists and scientists.

Mirta Guzman will have our BIG altar back

Serving Pozole, Soup and Hot Chocolate

You are invited to the celebration of a traditional Latin American holiday that combines pre-Colombian festivals and indigenous traditions with European rituals for honoring the dead. It is celebrated every year at this same time as Halloween and the Christian holy days of All Saints Day and All Souls Day.

In homes, families arrange “ofrendas” or altars. Tables are covered with fruit, flowers, vegetables, bread, candy, candles, incense, photos of the deceased, papel picado (paper cut-outs) represent the sky. Marigold petals are sprinkled to create a path for the spirits to follow on their return.

Please feel free to bring photos of those who have passed over, along with mementos and flowers.

The hall will be open for the honoring of “Dia de los Angelitos” (remembering children who have died) ,  Thursday Nov 1 from 8am -10pm.

On Friday  Nov. 2, Dia de los Muertos”, the BCC  will be open from 8am to 10pm. This day is not a sad time, but one rather of remembering and rejoicing. Musicians are welcome. 

Please join us for any or all of the celebration you can.   To volunteer: watch over the altar or bake some sweets for the BCC to sell which will help cover the cost of the altar, please call 868-2128 or email

Mirta Guzmán tendrá nuestro gran altar de vuelta

Sirviendo Pozole, Sopa Y Chocolate Caliente

Usted está invitado a la celebración de una fiesta tradicional latinoamericana que combina festivales precolombinos y tradiciones indígenas con rituales europeos para honrar a los muertos. Se celebra todos los años a esta misma hora que Halloween y los días santos cristianos del Día de Todos los Santos y del Día de los Difuntos.

En los hogares, las familias organizan “ofrendas” o altares. Las mesas están cubiertas con frutas, flores, verduras, pan, dulces, velas, incienso, fotos del difunto, papel picado (recortes de papel) representan el cielo. Los pétalos de caléndula se rocían para crear un camino para que los espíritus los sigan cuando regresen.

Por favor, siéntase libre de traer fotos de los que han pasado, junto con recuerdos y flores.

La sala estará abierta para el honor del “Día de los Angelitos” (recordando a los niños que han muerto), el jueves 1 de noviembre desde el mediodía hasta las 10 pm.

El viernes 2 de noviembre, Día de los Muertos “, el BCC estará abierto de 2pm a 8pm. Este día no es un momento triste, sino más bien de recordar y regocijarse. Los músicos son bienvenidos.

Por favor, únase a nosotros para cualquiera o toda la celebración que pueda. Para ser voluntario: vigile el altar o hornee algunos dulces para que los venda el BCC, que ayudarán a cubrir el costo del altar, llame al 868-2128 o envíe un correo electrónico.
