Join Dr. Gabriele Vail, Research Scholar at New College of Florida and noted Mayan expert, and Jeff Rodgers, Director of the Bishop Planetarium, for an evening devoted to putting the December 2012 "end of the world" into context.

What can we learn from the Maya creation/destruction mythologies? Does the calendar really "end" on December 21, 2012? Are there any astronomical alignments or rogue planets that threaten our existence?

Explore ancient Maya texts while using state-of-the-art technology to travel to December 21, 2012 in a journey to find the answers to one of the biggest questions of the millenia.

Tickets to The Destruction and Re-Creation of the World in Sacred Maya are $8 for Members and $10 for Non-Members.
