The study of celestial bodies is one of the oldest sciences. Meticulous observations of the night sky were made by many early civilizations who used the information for various purposes, including determining the right time for planting, harvesting, ceremonial events and tides.
On Saturday May 23, 2015, during ROM Big Weekend: Global Family and in conjunction with the exhibition “Generations,” artist-photographer Annu Matthew set up studio in the ROM galleries to take complimentary family photographs of ROM visitors. After a steady stream of interested parties that lasted all day, a total of 53 families were able to take advantage of the opportunity! Each received a free print, which was selected, edited and printed on the spot, and a digital file was emailed to them.
I am so excited to share with you all of the beautiful events and galleries happening at the ROM this week. There is so much for everyone to enjoy. From dinosaurs to all the fish in the sea, you won’t want to miss the amazing adventures to come from a visit to the Museum.
