Entering one of The Framing Establishment's locations is like walking into an art gallery. Large traditional landscapes and contemporary abstracts hang on the walls, and shadow boxes housing portraits and collectibles line the shelves. Amid this modern decor, professional framers scuttle about, sizing objects and answering customers' questions. They help their patrons pick out ready-made frames and art or consult with them to determine flattering custom mouldings and mats for their photos or most impressive parking tickets. They also help customers transform their TVs into works of art by providing frames and fabrics that complement home furnishings.

Shafts of sunlight pierce Tracy Aviary’s dense conifer forest, sending great grey owls into hiding until nightfall, when they emerge to hunt silently above the treetops. The Owl Forest is just one of five diverse ecosystems that dot the aviary’s eight acres. Nearby, at the South American Pavilion, aviary keepers tend to keel-billed toucans as their colorful beaks break through the cereal boxes in which they incubate. And on the Kennecott Wetland, visitors can espy long-billed curlews and American coots roosting in the tall grass.

In addition to providing a diverse habitat in which native and endangered species can thrive, Tracy Aviary’s curators strive to educate visitors about threats to avian species and to encourage stewardship. To that end, the aviary frequently hosts bird encounters, small group talks with avian keepers, and even the opportunity to feed various species.

Within Clark Planetarium's space-exploration-themed facility, the interactive displays and immersive IMAX and planetarium shows enlighten visitors with interesting scientific facts. Spread out across 10,000 square feet, more than 15 hands-on exhibits entrance guests with artifacts such as photos from the Hubble Space Telescope and a moon rock brought back from the Apollo 15 mission.

Audio in the ATK IMAX Theatre emanates from a 14,000-watt digital surround-sound system as the 70-foot wide, five-story-high screen accommodates Hollywood hits and insightful documentaries in 3-D. More entertainment abounds in the Hansen Dome Theatre, where six high-definition projectors fill the 55-foot domed screen with seamless images during scientific films and cosmic light shows.

Sugar Space Studio for the Arts offers an expansive and constantly updated schedule of innovative visual and movement-based arts classes, including Ayurvedic and Ashtanga yoga, martial arts, dance, and more. In Aerial Silk classes, students use fabric to wrap, suspend, and spiral their bodies into and out of skeleton-contorting positions. Limbs and trunks can explore movement and response in Contact Improvisation, a form of postmodern dance. For those with previous belly-dance training, Intermediate/Advanced Bellydance with Yasamina translates basic movements into more complex and dynamic combinations, leveling up the wow factor of performances. In addition to movement-based courses, Sugar Space will be adding experimental art and pottery classes for kids 5–12 this fall, so children can spin their imaginations in clay. Reservations are recommended to reserve your space and ceiling-hung ribbons as needed.
