More Sights to Behold!

The Great Mystery Show
October 7, 2017 - September 2, 2018
Main Building

From psychics to physicists, The Great Mystery Show artfully peels away the veil of the unknown! The exhibit playfully explores Mystery as that one secret power behind great art, science, and pursuit of the sacred. Mysteries personal and universal, punctuated by the out-of-this-world testimony of astronauts, mystery writers, theoreticians, poets and psychics, aim to inspire the "sleuth for the truth" detective within each of us. No "alternative facts here"—just a wildly visual exaltation of the strangeness and wonder of Life itself.
