See what happens when art, science and technology become one.
Make a Space for Art on your schedule. Space Center Houston’s newest exhibit Space for Art allows guests to see an artsy side of the astronauts, scientists and engineers behind paintings, photography, music, quilts, ceramics, a graphic novel, custom skateboards and more. Take a unique look at the point where art meets science.
The centerpiece of Space for Art is a trio of artistic spacesuit replicas created through the Space Suit Art Project. These exceptional suits, Hope, Courage and Unity, are composed of hand-painted canvasses by young cancer patients and will be displayed together through Feb. 12.
The Hope suit was painted by children at MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital while the Unity suit was painted by patients around the world. Hope and Unity are replicas of extra-vehicular activity suits while Courage is a flight suit replica. Space for Art is the first time all three suits are on display together.
The Space Suit Art Project is a collaboration between the University of Texas, MD Anderson Children’s Cancer Hospital’s Arts in Medicine Program, NASA and space suit company LLC Dover. The collaboration is helping to raise awareness of issues surrounding childhood cancer and revealing the positive connection between the arts and the healing process.
You won’t want to miss this must-see exhibit, open now through March 19, only at Space Center Houston.
