The Sanford Underground Research Facility (Sanford Lab) mounted a two-part art show that debuted at the facility's 2013 Neutrino Day science festival.
"Into the Dark: Artists Exploring Dark Matter" features work by 22 prominent South Dakota artists, who were asked to imagine one of nature's most profound mysteries.
"Deep Photography" features 25 images made by Black Hills State University Photography Professor Steve Babbitt and Sanford Lab Multimedia Specialist Matt Kapust. Their work captures the conversion of the former Homestake gold mine into a world leading underground research facility.
The two shows are on display at the Lead Deadwood Art Center on Main Street in Lead, S.D., through August. The two shows will travel throughout South Dakota in the coming year. Check www.sanfordlab.org
