‘Life on the Moon’ at Serenbe Tuesday

The University of West Georgia’s School of the Arts will host a session of “The Other Night School” Tuesday, Feb. 19, at The Inn at Serenbe’s Hawthorne Room.

The session – “Life on the Moon in the 1830s” – is free and open to the public, with a 6 p.m. reception and a 6:30 p.m. presentation by Mark Schoon, UWG associate professor of art.

For centuries the moon was an unattainable subject of speculation and desire. Through a series of illustrated newspaper articles in 1835, however, much of this speculation was set straight. Schoon will look at this and other instances when scientific representation competes with our desires and basic reasoning.
