Mystery of Man seeks to revive the classicist notion that both art and science are mediums of understanding. Throughout history, societies have employed both mediums to negotiate ideas of self and the meaning of existence. Through this lens, works selected will address one or many of the following questions: -Where or what did we come from? -Why are we here? -What is reality? -How do we interpret the self? View prospectus and juror information at: https://satellitegalleries.wufoo.com/forms/mystery-of-man-prospectus/  The Satellite Galleries are a part of Science Museum Oklahoma in Oklahoma City; they function in tandem with the museum to promote science literacy and encourage community dialogue.
