Apollo Art: 50 Year Retrospective
Did you know that in 1962, NASA administrator James E. Webb invited a group of artists to illustrate and interpret the agency’s missions and projects? Artists have been documenting the extraordinary adventure of spaceflight ever since.
Apollo Art: 50 Year Retrospective, on display now through Nov. 3, features pieces by artists Andy Warhol, Robert McCall, Lamar Dodd, Franklin McMahon, Paul Calle, Paul Sample, Pat Rawlings, Nicole Stott, Josh Simpson, and Michael Kagan.
The exhibit includes drawings, glass works, and paintings from the collections of NASA and contributions from other current artists. These more than 30 works—ranging from the illustrative to the abstract—present a different view of the Apollo program that photos and films can’t capture.
The exhibit will also feature Apollo-era artifacts not normally on public display.
This exhibit is included in general admission.
Please note Apollo Art: 50 Year Retrospective will temporarily be off display July 8 - Aug. 2.
