Time Out says

Curated by School of the Art Instiute of Chicago faculty members Giovanni Aloi and Andrew S. Yang, “Earthly Observatory” collects artworks that examine how humans engage with and form an understanding of the planet that we live on—from its natural wonders to man-made objects. Visitors can take in works like an elongated horse skeleton created by artist Zoé Strecker and a red "carpet" crafted from Oklahoma soil by artist Rena Detrixhe. Drawing on elements of art, design and natural sciences,“Earthly Observatory” is an exhibit that melds creativity and critical thinking. All visitors to the SAIC must register in advance.
