Space

Our signature fall exhibition highlights artwork, activities and popular cultural media that will help you imagine that you are on a spaceship blasting off from Earth and traveling through the planets that make up our solar system.
The exhibition features art that illustrates the exploration of the eight planets that orbit our sun. Art-making activities and other interactives will explore what is known about each of the planets and their moons, as well as the comets, asteroids and minor planets that inhabit our solar system.
The exhibition explores many questions:
• What is NASA, and what is its mission?
• What happened to planet Pluto?
• When will humans travel to the planet Mars?
• What are constellations?
• Why does the Earth rotate and what is gravity?
Get ready for a far-out adventure! Activities are created with science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) concepts in mind.
