Ongoing exhibit

Back on Earth

Until September 3, 2022

The latest museum exhibit is looking skyward with a beautiful astrophotography installation with all views taken from our very own dark sky.  

Back On Earth, an archival exhibit, shelves the telescope and looks down to the Earth and soil, the foundation of the settlement of L&A County. Land – its ownership, development and economic output – has been the backbone of the L&A story, a story that couldn’t be told without the advancements in agricultural machinery of the 20th century. 

The images, both large and small in Back On Earth, represent a time and place where agriculture was increasingly dependent on efficiency and volume to meet the needs of locals and more far reaching markets.
