WEBSTER, N.Y. — Although it’s still months away, the total solar eclipse will be here before we know it, and we are in the path of totality

Webster Parks and Recreation Center is preparing for the upcoming eclipse with an art exhibition that opened Saturday afternoon. The exhibit feature 30 posters from eclipse artist and astronomer Dr. Tyler Nordgren — who previously featured his work in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in 2017.

“We’re just getting very excited in the Rochester area for the solar eclipse,” said Katie Kovar, director of recreation with Webster Parks and Recreation. “I’m sure everyone has heard a little bit about it, and so kind of building that momentum around it and letting people know that we’re just as involved with this as the rest of the Rochester region is very exciting for us.”

The exhibit will be in Webster throughout December. Webster Parks and Recreation will hold multiple eclipse-related programs, from January through April of next year.
