Since bursting onto the scene at the 2002 Native American Music Awards, she has humbly and steadfastly earned a solid reputation as a sought-after collaborator, performer, educator, and mentor across Native North America and in some cases abroad. She launched Martha Redbone Roots Project in 2012 with release of "The Garden of Love - Songs of William Blake", a collection of 18th Century poems set to the music of Appalachia, and produced by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band founder and multiple Grammy Award winner John McEuen. Steady streams of acclaim from Village Voice to Smithsonian Institution soon followed.

Hubbard is a legendary Texas singer/songwriter whose tough but literate music ranges from personal introspection to bar room anthems. Hubbard’s sound calls listeners into his circle of fire and keeps them there, ready to dance. His lyrical and musical abandon has been powerful enough to rank him with the best of today’s singer-songwriters. His songs are personal and universal with lyrics that spin stories and his describe his own self-styled philosophy with a sense of irony and humor all his own. He is considered one of Americana music’s elder statesmen. Hubbard is regarded a musical force nearly four decades after he first established himself as one of country music's finest outlaws.

March 5
(Continues through June 12)….Butterflies Alive! - Do you remember the last time you saw a butterfly? Was it in a park, a garden, or your own backyard? What about a moth, with soft wings whispering in the shadow of night? Butterflies Alive is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the whole family that you won’t want to miss! Butterflies Alive brings the magical experience of a wild butterfly encounter up close and personal, providing you and your family with the thrilling experience of being surrounded by not a single butterfly, but hundreds of butterflies and moths flying freely and closely. Contained within a nearly 3,000 square foot garden enclosure, flowering plants, trees, and ornate decorations create an inspiring and mesmerizing atmosphere. Upon entering the “Flight House”, or the greenhouse structure that contains the butterflies, moths and flowering plants, one may spot a Zebra Longwing butterfly busily flying in search of a flower’s nectar meal, or perhaps an Atlas Moth roosting in anticipation of the evening’s approach. The well know Monarch butterfly will be easily found most days, and is a central theme of the garden. Butterflies Alive brings these beautiful winged insects to life before your eyes as never before. A “Pupae Emergence House” is a welcome feature of the garden, and is where new butterflies and moths emerge safely before being released into the Flight House (new butterflies are added every week). Viewing windows into the inner chamber ensure that every visitor will get a chance to see a butterfly or moth emerge from its chrysalis. If you’re patient, you may just catch a Red Admiral drying her wings after her emergence. Daily releases, performed by Science Spectrum staff, into the Flight House are an added bonus not to be missed. While you’re here, you’ll also be able to take in the full butterfly experience by seeing the OMNI film, Flight of the Butterflies. Flight of the Butterflies is an interconnected scientific adventure story that spans not only thousands of miles, but generations. It’s about the remarkable Monarch butterfly migration, the most incredible migration on Earth, and the determined scientists who spent forty years trying to discover exactly where the butterflies mysteriously disappeared when they flew south for winter. This is exhibition is expected to be popular during it’s opening week, during Spring Break and on weekends, so here are a few things you can do to make your trip a little easier.
