Save The Night (Arts & Culture - UT Arlington and Community)
It's dark out there at night. But maybe that's good for you and everything around you. Two nationally respected conservationists will examine the impact of nighttime artificial light on physical, mental and spirtiual health at a workshop and lecture Nov. 6 at the Planetarium at UT Arlington.
Cindy Luongo Cassidy will lead the 5-6:45 p.m. lighting assessment workshop featuring a walk-around critique of installed lighting on the UTA campus. Following the Planetarium show "The November Night Sky," she and Paul Bogard will present "Save the Night," a lecture with Q&A. Bogard will sign his book afterward.
Participants will learn how to have sufficient outdoor light at night while saving energy, minimizing glare, increasing safety, reducing light trespass, and creating an aesthetically pleasing nocturnal environment. More information...
