WinterFest February 2013
Thank you to everyone who attended our WinterFest 2013 events. It included an opportunity to see our newly restored and redesigned black light zodiac mural and meet the mural artist, Ms. Jackie Baughman. The mural spans three of the planetarium's four walls. A signature feature of the Schouweiler Planetarium since the mid 1970's, the newly re-imaged mural is now assured a continued long life.
