Holding his breath and moving with a steady hand, the artist adds another layer of gold to a sheet of glass as the audience watches in amazement.

“Even just a little breeze will tear it,” says Tony Segale, as he places delicate sheets of gold leaf on the glass.

Segale, a local artist, demonstrated gold leaf reverse glass painting for a group of about 20 people during the first “An Evening into the Unknown” event at the World of Wonders Science Museum on Wednesday.

“An Evening into the Unknown” will open new opportunities for the 18 and over crowd at the World of Wonders, offering insights into science and daily activities.

On the final Thursday of each month, local experts will host demonstrations and hands-on events in their respective fields for adults to participate in.

“Science is the world around us,” said Sally Snyde, president of the World of Wonders. “We are trying to bring in a different group of people to enjoy the museum.”

Future evenings will include kite-flying on the roof of the Downtown Lodi parking garage, crane dancing, costume making and a look into the connection between food and health.

Each class is free for members of the World of Wonders or $6 for non-members.

For more information on An Evening into the Unknown, contact the World of Wonders at 209-368-0969 or visit www.wowsciencemuseum.com.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
