February 5, 2018 | kateGeorge Ferrandi introduces JUMP!STAR at the Ulrich Museum of Art. JUMP!STAR is a social sculpture conceived and directed by George Ferrandi and presented by Harvester Arts, Symphony in the Flint Hills, and Chamber Music at The Barn. It’s a little-known fact that the North Star that was overhead when the pyramids were built is not the same star as our North Star now (Polaris). In about a thousand years, a completely different star will be our North Star. Because of a slight wobble in the Earth’s rotation, the pole star position is not fixed. Our “guiding light” changes. Isn’t this amazing?
