On August 21, 2017, the sun, the moon, and the Earth will form a cosmic chorus line and the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art in St. Joseph, Missouri, lies in the center of a path across North America that will be plunged into darkness.  And we plan to celebrate!  In honor of the first complete solar eclipse in the United States since the 1970’s, the Albrecht-Kemper presents “Solar Flair:  Celestial Bodies in Motion”.  This juried exhibition will showcase artworks of all media depicting moons, planets, and stars.  Artists throughout the United States have submitted their entries and the works have been selected.  Below is a list of participating artists.
