Art.Science.Gallery.’s Far Out show, the gallery’s exhibit inspired by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, is currently on view at the Texas Museum of Science & Technology (1220 Toro Grande Drive, Cedar Park, TX 78613). It is a traveling version of the Art & Science 2017: James Webb Space Telescope exhibit from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
In November 2016, twenty-two artists were selected nationwide to attend the James Webb Space Telescope Artist Event at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. They sat directly in front of the Webb telescope and were briefed on the mission by scientists, engineers and other project personnel while they worked. Art.Science.Gallery.’s Far Out exhibit showcases the impressions of eight of these artists.
The James Webb Space Telescope is the world’s most advanced space observatory. This engineering marvel is designed to unravel some of the greatest mysteries of the universe, from discovering the first stars and galaxies that formed after the big bang to studying the atmospheres of planets around other stars. It is a joint project of NASA, ESA (the European Space Agency) and the Canadian Space Agency.
You may view the art exhibit with admission to the Texas Museum of Science & Technology through the end of January 2018. Click here for directions to the museum and for details on planning your visit.
