Ancient Skies Through Ancient Eyes
Photographic exhibition by Bob Maynard
March 17 – October 27, 2018
USU Eastern Prehistoric Museum Special Exhibition Gallery
This special exhibition features a selection of photographs from Maynard’s book Ancient Skies Through Ancient Eyes: Archeaoastronomy and Night Photography in the Desert Southwest. His photography takes you on an exciting discovery of the unexpected abundance of ancient rock art and ruins in and around the Colorado Plateau of the American Southwest. It examines rock art styles and delves into ways the ancient ones used rock art panels and architecture to mark the passing of time and the seasons. The exhibition features several night images from Nine Mile Canyon. It is a beautiful and insightful view of one of Utah’s most significant rock art locations.
