NASA Art at the Smithsonian

Artists, like astronauts, constantly probe the unknown.  Shortly after its establishment in 1958, NASA created the NASA Art Program on the principle that artists are uniquely equipped to interpret and document the experience of space exploration.  For the first time, NASA/ART,(Abrams, October; 176 pages; 150 full color illustrations; $40 US; $44 CAN) by Art ProgramFounder James Dean and Program Curator Bertram Ulrich, brings together the stories and images behind these unique and celebrated pieces of history.
