I found THIS ARTICLE in the Washington Post online earlier this week and thought it would be of interest.

The article talks about the NASA Fine Arts Program and their involvement in the agency as a whole.

"The collection includes about 800 relatively recent works on display, and about 2,000 works that pre-date the country's bicentennial are housed in the National Air and Space Museum. Parts of the collection are mobile, touring about 40 states over 31/2 years."

Check it out...

Thank you for posting this.

Actually, the NASA Art Progrm officically ended 1-1-2004, after a run of
some years since NASA's inception back 1961. NASA has retained two
artist; myself and Andreas Nottesbaum.

I have been doing work for the agency for some 23 years now since STS
-1, my first assginement in the Fine Art Program.

I am currently working on the official Memorial of Columbia for NASA-
Smithsonian, as I did for the loss of Challenger.

I am also here at this site in the gallery section and at my website you can
view addional works along with the NASA works, oil and digital as well as
movie work

Hope this information helps visitors here.

I am,

Thank you so much for the gracious welcome.

Have been awfully busy and traveling and getting ready to go to Isreal and India, to have memorial paitnings inducted into thier national archives respectively in both countries, in remembrance of the astronauts they lost on STS-107, Columbia.

It is great to be here and the site is superb!!!!

I am saddened that NASA has ended the Art Program as it was the true vehicle, as all great ages of exploration have been documented, by the artist, to convey the overall NASA mission.  Many within  NASA including  the loudest voices being the Astronauts themselves, feel the same and are imploring Sean O'keefe, current NASA administrator, to rethink this plan of no more art program.

I agree, whether or not I am retained or not.  There are many good artist out there.

Robert

Wow, that is excellent news Robert - is there a web link at NASA where we can stay updated on the happenings within the program?  Sometimes things can be tough to find over there!

The bst link for updates and happenigns and assignments is here:

http://www.hq.nasa.gov/copernica/cadb/indexN.htm

Bert Ulrich is the new director of the program there, taking over from my dear friend, mentor, Bob Schulman (deceased, 4-12-2004).

I have forward one artist here from your site to NASA down the view of inclusion for assginment for a mission coverage event.  We are waiting back for NASA consideration of such.

Thanks,

Robert
