Join us at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building for the city’s most cerebral happy hour. The spring equinox is upon us, and things are getting positively celestial at March’s Library After Hours. Collections displays, films, activities, and more celebrate all things heavenly in the collections of the New York Public Library. Check out rare astronomical treatises, watch classic science docs, and get busy with astral crafts.
Starry Messengers will include:
- A one-night-only collections displaying exploring the artistic, cultural, and scientific history of astronomy
- A curated selection of 16mm films from our archives that will take you to space and beyond
- Cosmic lectures with Astronomy on Tap’s Jana Grcevich, Brian Levine, and Irene Pease
- Crafting with the collections: color rare and beautiful astronomical drawings
- A chance to explore “You Say You Want a Revolution,” the Library’s exhibition on the counterculture of the 1960s and 70s
- Quiet room with games, coloring, and puzzles
- Music and dancing courtesy of I Like It
