Only by understanding and engaging with the past can we navigate to a confidently and creatively shaped future. In celebration of the 50thanniversary of the first lunar landing and the 150th anniversary of Purdue University, Purdue Galleries has invited three artists to explore and find inspiration in Purdue’s Barron Hilton Flight and Space Exploration Archives. Their challenge is to bring art, engineering, and science together to imagine new horizons informed by archival documents and artifacts contained in the Neil A. Armstrong Papers and the papers of other astronauts and engineers. This exhibition is in collaboration with Purdue University Libraries’ Archives and Special Collections.
Join us at 5:30PM on Thursday, April 4, 2019, for the reception & talk.
