In January 2007, I was picked to be a part of the first ever art exhibition in space, aboard the International Space Station. The effort was part of space entrepreneur Richard Garriott's mission to the station. Garriott had many activities planned for the trip, including the creation of art in zero gravity. Liftoff happened on October 12, and although there was some confusion at first, my artwork was onboard the Russian Soyuz rocket and did travel with Garriott to the ISS. Mr. Garriott recently emailed me these photos of the show and it's audience of crew members. I'm thrilled to have been a part of this historic event and honored that I was invited. The artwork will be auctioned off for charity to benefit the Challenger Center for Space Science Education.
