Sun Ra was a visionary artist and composer who infused his ecstatic performances with costumes and mythology that both looked back to ancient Egypt and forward into science fiction. Vocalist, songwriter, and author Nona Hendryx has created a multisensory tribute to this iconoclastic musician, with orchestrations by composer, trombonist, and Sun Ra devotee Craig Harris, conceived specifically for The Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing.
