Pluto don’t get no respect. Because of its size and location in space, the mass of mostly ice and rock in the Kuiper belt was demoted to the status of dwarf planet in 2006 by the International Astronomical Union. “To: Pluto,” the invitational, multimedia art exhibition opening Friday, Nov. 6, at Sediment Arts, explores the relationship between the planetoid and the great big blue ball we inhabit. Diverse perspectives on environmental, social and technological issues are the underlying themes of the varied works inspired by mankind’s ever-increasing ability to go where no man has gone — as evidenced by the July photos of Pluto taken by NASA satellite New Horizons. The opening reception is from 6-9 p.m. with events and film screenings throughout the duration of the exhibition. Through Dec. 12. sedimentarts.org.
