Space Station Looking For Art

Managers of the International Space Station are commissioning art for the station. “People associate the space station almost exclusively with scientific work,” said Nicola Triscott, director of the science-art agency The Arts Catalyst, which has been commissioned by the European Space Agency to make a six-month study of practical proposals for art in space. “But the agency believes very strongly that the cultural world should have a say in the future of space exploration.”
