Apollo Art: 50 Year Retrospective, on display May 11 - Oct. 31, features pieces by artists Andy Warhol, Robert McCall, Lamar Dodd, Franklin McMahon, Paul Calle, Paul Sample, Pat Rawlings, Nicole Stott, Josh Simpson, and Michael Kagan.

The exhibit includes drawings, glass works, and paintings from the collections of NASA and contributions from other current artists. These more than 30 works—ranging from the illustrative to the abstract—present a different view of the Apollo program that photos and films can’t capture.

The exhibit will also feature Apollo-era artifacts not normally on public display.

This exhibit is included in general admission.
