Galileo's World: An Artful Observation of the Cosmos

at Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art

In the “Starry Messenger” (1610), Galileo reported his discovery of four satellites of Jupiter and mountains on the moon. These sensational telescopic discoveries would’ve been impossible were it not for Galileo’s experience in Renaissance art; get a firsthand look in “Galileo’s World: An Artful Observation of the Cosmos.”

This exhibition is in conjunction with “Galileo’s World: An Exhibition Without Walls,” a series of exhibits, events, and programs at the Bizzell Memorial Library, Sam Noble Museum, National Weather Center, Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, Headington Hall, Robert M. Bird Health Sciences Library and OU-Tulsa Schusterman Library in celebration of OU’s 125th anniversary. Beginning August 2015 and running through August 2016, Galileo’s World illustrates connections between science, art, literature, music, religion, philosophy, politics and culture.
