The Artrain Rides Again!
News story originally written on July 19, 1999
The NASA Artrain is starting a new journey across the country! The world's only traveling art museum will spend the next three years visiting 48 states. The exhibit will open on July 21, 1999, in Washington D.C., and then continue a tour throughout the United States.
The exhibit is called "Artistry of Space" and will feature 78 works from NASA and the National Air and Space Museum. NASA formed this project to bring art to communities that have no museums. The NASA Art Program began in 1962 and has been visited by more than 2.6 million people.
