Now you can see the results of that visionary program at NASA | Art: 50 Years of Exploration, a touring Smithsonian exhibit with 73 pieces that celebrate the wonders of space in diverse media, including painting, photography and sculpture. Accompanying the official NASA artwork is a selection of complementary works from local artists Eric Bransby, Monica Petty Aiello and Vance Kirkland, plus a film series, a play, art classes and a lecture series. "We wanted to use the NASA show as an opportunity to broaden the spectrum of our offerings under the umbrella of a single theme," Milteer says.
The exhibit continues through March 7. Admission is $5 for FAC members and $15 for non-members. Admission is free for FAC members and $10 for non-members. For more info, visit www.csfineartscenter.org/nasa.html or call 719-477-4345.
