TAPS 2018

Thank you to our wonderful artists, scientists, and visitors! The 2018 Art of Planetary Science show was a success! We had nearly 100 artists and scientists submitting over 200 pieces, and it wouldn't have been possible without you. As always, we're so touched by the love and support of both our department and the greater Tucson community in allowing us to put on a successful event every year. See you all next year!


TAPS Organizers,

Tracy Esman, Tess Hentz, Laci Brock, Zarah Brown, Amanda Stadermann, Jamie Molaro, Sarah Peacock, and Hannah Tanquary
