Boston Globe 3rd WAM SITES blurb


It took 40 years of robotic space missions to collect more than 50 photographs of Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and other planets for “Beyond: Visions of Planetary Landscapes” – there must be more to it than point and shoot. The images in this Smithsonian traveling exhibit were digitally processed by Michael Benson, who used a mosaic and collage process to capture our neighboring planets and their moons. Photos include rare shots of the sand dunes on Mars, storms on Neptune, and fiery eruptions of the sun. Today from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. (through May 24). $10, $8 seniors and college students, free 17 and under and on Saturday from 10 a.m.-noon. Worcester Art Museum, 55 Salisbury St., Worcester. 508-799-4406.
