Under the Sun: An Outdoor Exhibition of Light

June 19, 1999 – September 6, 1999

Smithsonian Gardens
Smithsonian museum grounds
Washington, DC

Sponsor: SITES, Smithsonian Gardens

Location: Haupt Garden

This exhibition explores Earth's greatest power source--solar energy--and its potential as a catalyst for design, both practical and visionary--from sundials to solar collectors. A variety of solar and solar electric products, prototypes, and commissioned designs demonstrate the sun's energy as a working asset.

Organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES); co-sponsored with the Smithsonian Gardens (previously Horticultural Services Division).
