Some of our upcoming programs
A special class in celebration of the 2014 FIFA World Cup!
75 - The Science of Soccer
As the FIFA World Cup excites audiences around the world, OASIS is planning a class which will explore the science behind the most popular game in the world. Why does a ball bounce? Why does it curve in flight? How far can a ball be kicked? Just kicking a ball relates to the physics of motion and friction, and even aerodynamics. These and other aspects of what has been called “the beautiful game” will be explained without delving into complex mathematics. A presentation by John M. Taylor, author of The Science of Soccer
, published by UNM Press.
Monday, August 18, 1-2:30pm at OASIS
86 - Farm Security Administration Photographers in New Mexico, 1935-1943

This presentation by Baldwin Burr, museum photo archivist, focuses on the work of FSA Photographers Dorothea Lange
, Russell Lee
, and Jack Delano
in New Mexico communities like Bosque Farms, Pie Town and Truchas.
