NASA's Sun as Art Exhibit

The NASA Sun As Art exhibit presents a new way of looking at the sun as seen from space.

Location: Lobby of the Artscape Playhouse, 1727 N. Charles Street

The NASA Sun As Art exhibit presents a new way of looking at the sun as seen from space, made possible by advances in imaging technology and sophisticated spacecraft engineering. The collection consists of 20 full color, high-resolution images of the star with which we live. Some of the pieces stand alone, beautiful images that hold true to the original picture. Others have been modified: one looks like an Andy Warhol painting; another like an orange. Several pieces in the collection have an interactive component where visitors using smart phones can scan a QR code and watch the particular solar event that inspired the finished image.

The exhibit is the brainchild of Dr. Steele Hill, a media specialist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Dr. Hill selected images from some of the agency's solar missions to showcase incredible details of the sun in a unique way.
