Films on Thursdays: Seath Eastman-Painting the Dakota

This is a story of art crossing the boundaries of culture and time. Learn about artist and military officer Seth Eastman's life and the traditions of the Dakota he depicted, through Eastman's artwork, essays, and interviews with Dakota elders. Eastman was a soldier who spent many years in the American west, particularly working as an artist to document Native Americas for the U.S. government and for private purposes. In the 1840s, he was the commander at Fort Snelling and was accompanied by his wife, Mary Henderson
Eastman. Eastman and Mary were very sympathetic to the Indians and they took great pains to learn their language and customs, making his images some of the most accurate and interesting of the nineteenth century. Not Rated, Runtime 60 min.

Films on Thursdays: The Great Math Mystery

Location: Treaty Site History Center
1851 N. Minnesota Ave., St. Peter

NOVA leads viewers on a mathematical mystery tour -- a provocative exploration of math's astonishing power across the centuries. We discover math's signature in the swirl of a nautilus shell, the whirlpool of a galaxy and the spiral in the center of a sunflower. Math was essential to everything from the first wireless radio trans-missions to the prediction and discovery of the Higgs boson and the successful landing of rovers on Mars. But where does math get its power? Astrophysicist and writer Mario Livio, along with a colorful cast of mathematicians, physicists, and engineers, follows math from Pythagoras to Einstein and beyond, all leading to the ultimate riddle: Is math an invention or a discovery? Humankind's clever trick or the language of the universe? Rated PG, Runtime 54 min.
