NASA & the Exploration of Space: With Works from the NASA Art Collection
From the earliest ages of exploration, artists have always been present to document both the dangers and the excitement of the unknown. In 1963, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, itself only a few years old, commissioned the imagination of a diverse group of American artists and invited them to become eyewitnesses to U.S. space exploration efforts. Their assignment: to broaden public understanding of space-related events through their artistic interpretations. It was the beginning of a legacy, and today, the NASA Art Program continues to be an official and important part of NASA activities.
