As we stand on the brink of a new era where art transcends boundaries and science breaks new ground, the Glendale Library, Arts & Culture Trust (GLACT) is thrilled to support an event that embodies this pioneering spirit: the “Blended Worlds: Experiments in Interplanetary Imagination” exhibition.

This extraordinary showcase, a collaboration between the City of Glendale’s Library, Arts & Culture Department and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, is part of the Getty’s PST ART: Art & Science Collide. It’s a regional art event that promises to take us on a journey through the past, present, and future of the entwined realms of art and science.

Why “Blended Worlds”? “Blended Worlds” is more than an exhibition; it’s a conversation between disciplines, a dialogue between worlds. It’s where the ethereal beauty of art and the rigorous logic of science meet to explore our relationships with the cosmos. The GLACT, through a grant from the Getty, is proud to support this initiative.

The Visionaries Behind the Art The exhibition features a constellation of artists and scientists, including the iconic Larry Bell and the innovative Moon Ribas, who have come together to create a tapestry of experiences that challenge our perceptions and inspire wonder. Their works, alongside those of nine other artists, invite us to contemplate our place in the universe and the interconnectedness of all things.

Highlights to Anticipate

  • Larry Bell’s “Time Machine”: A reflective journey that plays with our sense of self and the other.
  • Moon Ribas’s “Seismic Percussion”: A performance that harmonizes the seismic whispers of Earth and Mars.
  • David Bowen’s “Tele-present Wind”: An installation that brings the Martian atmosphere to Earth, stirring the air we share with the distant red planet.

Engage with “Blended Worlds” The exhibition is just the beginning. A series of public programs and community events will unfold, offering everyone a chance to engage with the themes of “Blended Worlds.” From an evening of art, theater, and science to an original musical and a family-friendly festival, there’s something for everyone to connect with and explore.
