Friday, July 5, Noon
Alien Forms


Bring a lunch and take in a free lecture by Roswell Museum and Art Center Curator Aubrey Hobart about Alien Forms, an exhibition of some of the more bizarre and rarely-seen works of art in RMAC’s collection. Rather than focusing on extraterrestrial life forms, the exhibition and  talk explore the term "alien" in relation to the unusual products of the human imagination. From a tall, spindly sculpture by Rebecca Davis to the organic swirls of Emil Bisttram, learn about the concepts and process behind the creation of these strange and wonderful forms.



Global Rocket Launch!


Tuesday, July 16, 9-9:45 am | Free



The community is invited to join us as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the day Apollo 11 launched to the moon. On Tuesday, July 16 starting at 9 am, Goddard Planetarium, along with Goddard High School's Engineering Program, will lead rocket launches on the north side parking lot across from the Convention Center and Museum as part of a worldwide celebration. High school students will help participants assemble simple straw rockets and participants may bring their own model rocket to launch (for safety, please contact us in advance if it flies above 15 ft.). This is a drop-by event and will last about 30 minutes. Rockets will launch at approximately 9:20 am. For more information please call the Roswell Museum and Art Center at 575-624-6744
