A River Out of Time film screening and interactive exhibit opening Feb. 23

The Stein Luminary will present the one-hour documentary, “A River Out of Time,” at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 23, 2023, in the Stein Luminary Museum located in the Center for the Visual Arts as part of the Digital Media in Arts and Sciences Series. The film follows a team of scientists, artists and educators who rafted the Colorado River in 2019 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of John Wesley Powell’s Colorado River Exploration Expedition. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Lead scientist, Tom Minckley, a paleo-geologist at the University of Wyoming and co-editor of the resulting book “Vision and Place: John Wesley Powell and Reimagining the Colorado River Basin”, and lead artist, Pat Kikut, will show several artists’ responses and techniques in an interactive exhibition on the Luminary’s touchscreens.

A discussion of the documentary was held in the College of Innovation and Design’s Innovation Incubator space.
