Summer Series with Hamish Lutris
In the words of Orville Wright, “the dream of flight is an idea that has always impassioned mankind.” Beginning July 8, Noble Horizons will host instructor Hamish Lutris for a compelling series that examines the dream and history of flight.
On Monday, July 8 at 10 am, Lutris will teach Minos Rules Everything but He Does Not Rule the Heavens in which he explores the concept of flight from its most ancient ideas to the Second World War, when rockets and space travel became a reality. On Wednesday, July 10, 10 am, he will discuss the US-Soviet space race in The Day the Earth Stood Still. On Monday, July 15, 10 am Lutris will conclude with One Small Step in which he assesses the Soviet lunar attempt, the intrepid technological spirit and prowess that drove Apollo program, and the sense of political urgency of the US moon landing.

Don't miss Earthbound Buddha, artist/sculptor Karl Saliter's exhibit and sale of new works opening at Noble Horizons on October 18, 5-7 pm. Saliter describes the collection as "a loving body of work trafficking in everyday aspects of the spiritual search. It is reverent. It is irreverent. It offers an unusual series of multi-media works in recycled materials. People who come to this show will get to be part of a delightful lighthearted turn on "wisdom," and short circuit their own spiritual search with laughter."
