Laurel Casjens to Present "Cave of Forgotten Dreams: @ NHMU's Science Movie Night

UCA Board Member and Photographer Laurel Casjens will be the “local expert” featured in the Natural History Museum of Utah’s next Science Movie Night screening.  Following a viewing of “Cave of Forgotten Dreams,” Laurel will speak about the cave and rock art around Utah.  

April 10, 6:30pm at the City Library

About "Cave of Dreams:"
Discovered in 1994, the Chauvet Cave in southern France contains pristine artwork dating back 30,000 years. Amid gleaming stalactites and stalagmites and a carpet of animal bones, beautiful images of horses and bison gallop alongside ghostly cave lions, cave bears and woolly mammoths. Legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog gained exclusive access to film inside the nearly inaccessible cave. Don’t miss this unique glimpse of the birth of art.

Following the film, photographer, museum curator, and archaeologist Dr. Laurel Casjens will explore Utah’s hauntingly beautiful rock art and how it helps connect us to the people who lived here long ago.
