Lifes Rocky Start – Wed. at 2:00pm, 52 minutes, all audiences
Four and a half billion years ago, the young Earth was a hellish place—a seething chaos of meteorite impacts, volcanoes belching noxious gases, and lightning flashing through a thin, torrid atmosphere. Then, in a process that has puzzled scientists for decades, life emerged. But how? NOVA joins mineralogist Robert Hazen as he journeys around the globe. From an ancient Moroccan market to the Australian Outback, he advances a startling and counterintuitive idea—that the rocks beneath our feet were not only essential to jump-starting life, but that microbial life helped give birth to hundreds of minerals we know and depend on today. It's a theory of the co-evolution of Earth and life that is reshaping the grand-narrative of our planet’s story.

Treasures of the Earth – Wed. at 3:30pm, 52 minutes, all audiences
Their beauty has captivated us for millennia. Their cost can be extraordinary – some are even considered priceless. Precious gems like diamonds, rubies, emeralds, opal, and jade are the ultimate treasures of the earth, and each one is made from a specific – and often torturous – recipe of chemistry, pressure, and heat. The secrets to their sparkle, color, and even strength lie deep inside the gems themselves, but could they also hold clues to one of the most enduring mysteries in the field of geology? From Tiffany’s workshop in New York to the sapphire mines of Sri Lanka, from North Carolina’s emerald fields to the jade-laden Forbidden City of China, come join us as we explore the fascinating science of gems.

Basic Tin Punching
with Julie Murphy & Tabatha Hudson
Saturday, March 11, 10 am - noon
Tin punching is diminishing in the modern world, but is kept alive in the Southwest, especially in New Mexico. Tin punching has strong Hispanic roots as seen in several outstanding examples at the Museum including our historic tin chandeliers in the Founders Gallery. Basic Tin Punching will include proper use of tools, design, and practice. All materials will be provided.

Writing in the Galleries
During this workshop students will engage with artworks on a deeper level through thoughtful looking and guided dialogue. On Saturday, each student will select a piece that elicits meaning or emotion and compose a creative writing piece based on their selected work. Students will compose sketches reflecting the work they chose which will be translated into prints. Sunday, students will create their prints to accompany their writing pieces and complete a work that tells a story through both image and text. Student’s work will then be displayed near their chosen artwork for family, friends, and visitors to enjoy.
