Prisms of the Potomac

Prisms set into the south wall of the National Museum of the American Indian provide a colorful indicator of the passing day and the changing seasons. Interviews with museum staff and with Charles Ross, the artist who designed and installed the prisms, connect the beauty of the solar spectrum they cast with universal aspects of indigenous cultures. This video was created by Sarah M. Turner during an internship with the museum.
