Lecture by arts writer Ann Landi and art historian Dr. Richard Tobin exploring a wealth of inspiration in the imagery of the heavens and the potential for space travel.

Some, like Lee Bontecou and Christine Taylor Patten, use sculpture and drawing to channel the mysteries of celestial phenomena. But younger artists often have more ambitious goals: they stage their own fantastic voyages inside the walls of galleries and museums; photograph imagined landings on Mars and the moon; document the sinister travels of spy satellites or the ambitious building of the first spaceport (in southern New Mexico); and even play with the notion of selling fictive real estate in outer space.  Richard Tobin and Ann Landi will discuss related work by artists  including Marc Baseman, Christina Sporrong, Joe Clower, Charles Luna, Paul Elwood and Steve Storz.
