Art Space for Space Art

Visitors to the Air and Space Museum expect to see Lindbergh’s Spirit of St. Louis, the Wright Brothers’ 1903 Flyer but ... Andy Warhol? They may be surprised to encounter the pop artist, Norman Rockwell and others in the 72 works of this joint NASA/Smithsonian exhibition NASA/ART: 50 Years of Exploration. Whimsy and humor inform William Wegman’s photo of his Weimeraners (pictured) as well as Clayton Pond’s sci-fi panorama that depicts the actual Enterprise easing into the sky toward the Star Trek Enterprise. Fact meets fantasy.
