Totality Conference: Call for Proposals
Be More Than a Spectator: Join in Creating the Path to Totality
- Submissions Due: Monday, March 4, 2024 — Submission Form
- Conference Date: Friday, April 5, 2024
The Totality Conference is a mini-conference modeled on the successful template created for Black Solidarity Day. Held on on April 5, the Friday prior to the Total Solar Eclipse, the conference gives us an opportunity to contemplate the meaning of the experience from as many perspectives as possible — scientific, social, cultural, aesthetic, historical and spiritual. We invite students, faculty, staff and community members to contribute a session that speaks directly to one or more of these perspectives on this once-in-a-lifetime celestial event.
Already submitted? Thank you! We ask that you update your time preferences using this form: Submit/update proposals by March 4, 2024.

Solar Eclipse, Path to Totality Mini-Exhibit
Celebrating the Path to Totality with Rockwell Kent
The Plattsburgh State Art Museum and its staff are anxiously awaiting this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to behold the total eclipse that will occur in Plattsburgh on April 8, 2024. In anticipation of this momentous event, we explored our collections for celestial representations to mark the occasion. While we did not have artworks that address this specific astrological event, we did discover a powerful selection of Rockwell Kent works that address the celestial realm.
- Date & Time: Ongoing through the spring semester
