SPACE: Humanity's Longest Journey
(JULY 20, 2019 – SEPTEMBER 15, 2019)
The exhibit includes art and artifacts themed from a time when humans curiosity with the skies led to the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union. The exhibit includes artifacts on loan from the National Museum of the United States Air Force, the Cosmosphere, artist Chesley Bonestell, and U.S. Space and Rocket Center. Featured items include official photos of the Apollo 11 moon landing, science fiction art by Chesley Bonestell, Soviet Union space propaganda posters, along with Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo program artifacts; and everyday items representing the space race inspired design. This one of a kind collection of art and artifact exhibit will capture the beauty and imagination that inspired an entire generation to reach beyond what they thought possible.
This exhibit is made possible by The Richard Brooke Foundation, Dr. C.C. and Mabel L. Criss Memorial Foundation, Gallup, Mutual of Omaha, and Valmont Industries, Inc.
