Visions of the Cosmos Exhibit at LPL
On Friday, October 23, 2009, members of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA) exhibited their work in the Kuiper Space Sciences Building Atrium.
The "Visions of the Cosmos" exhibit was held in celebration of the 50th anniversaries of both the National Astronomy Observatory (1958-2008) and The University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory (1960-2010).
Some of the art on display was very new; IAAA artists spent October 18-22 at Kitt Peak National Observatory creating new works to celebrate the National Observatory's anniversary. Three IAAA exhibitors were Arizona artists: Dr. William K. Hartmann (alumnus of The University of Arizona and Senior Scientist at the Planetary Science Institute), Michelle Rouch, and John Clark. Other exhibitors traveled to Tucson from California, Florida, New Hampshire, and Quebec, Canada.
