The Gallery at the Manship Theatre is showing “Earth as Art” through July 31.
The show features a series of satellite photographs from the Landsat Project.
The images show a view of the Earth that the naked eye cannot see represented in colors that the Landsat and Aqua satellites can, according to information from the museum.
The satellites represent the contrast between the natural elements and textures of the Earth as never before interpreted with the human eye.
“The beauty of the Earth is clear, and the artistry of these data-rich and aesthetically pleasing portraits of our one and only home ranges from the surreal to the sublime, such as the great Mississippi River, are transformed into something almost alien,” according to the information. “We are using art to teach science.”
The Louisiana Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System is showing this exhibit at the gallery next to the theater in the Shaw Center for the Arts, 100 Lafayette St.
Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday and 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free.
