Photographic exhibition by Bob Maynard
The Prehistoric Museum presents the “Ancient Skies Through Ancient Eyes” exhibition by photographer Bob Maynard. The exhibition opens to the public March 17, 2018 and features a selection of photographs from Maynard’s book on archeaoastronomy and night photography in the desert Southwest. “Ancient Skies Through Ancient Eyes” 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.
