Answers:

Why is MMoCA exhibiting this artist's work?
Martha Glowacki has built a distinguished record of creating finely crafted artworks that emerge from disciplined research and contemplative inquiry into human investigation of nature. The museum presented an exhibition of her earlier work in its galleries in 1995 and chose to build on this collaboration with the site-specific installation Starry Transit.
