The Art of Planetary Science
Event Description: 

Currently in the 7th annual exhibition, The Art of Planetary Science brings together Data Art and Fine Art from space and planetary themed ideas, from artists all around Earth. This year’s show, due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), will be held in an entirely online format. We present to you, The Art of Planetary Science 2020: A Virtual Odyssey.

We will be bringing space-themed art displayed to an online gallery format  September 25–27, 2020. Artwork will be displayed online after the event weekend, and we hope to continue to inspire others to help highlight the beauty and elegance of our Solar System, and beyond.

In addition, this year we are in collaboration with International Observe the Moon Night and we will be hosting special moon-themed art submissions and poetry. Moon-themed art can be submitted to The Art of Planetary Science 2020: A Virtual Odyssey, as well as to International Observe the Moon Night’s Flickr page.

We will be hosting special live and pre-recorded videos and presentations during the weekend of September 25–27, 2020 relative to the past, present and future ways in which we explore and observe the Moon. There will be invited speakers, live-art demonstrations, “how-to” demonstrations for astrophotography, musical and entertainment performances, as well as a telescope viewing stream of the Moon from the Mt. Lemmon Sky Center. The event schedule will be posted to our home page, where you will find the information and links so you may tune into different Moon-themed presentations from artists, scientists, and astronauts.

Submissions are now open until August 31, 2020 for The Art of Planetary Science 2020: A Virtual Odyssey. 

The submission form, as well as detailed information located on the Prospectus, is located on our website
