Museum Nights: Dog Days of Summer

July 13 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

dog sculptures on display at the harn museum

It’s a brisk 70 degrees at 50% humidity in the museum. Come on in and cool off during this most sweltering summer period named for the dog star ‘Sirius’ which rises and sets with the sun this time of year.

Director of Kilva Sa Planetarium James Albury will be here to make the literal connection while the art on view will metaphorically invoke the sultrier shades of summer. Explore the science of conservation with a docent or a registrar and find out why it’s so cold in here, too. Cool drinks, hot tunes, Art Blast tours and galleries full of stars await you! Always free and open to all.
