Sending your artwork to new heights!

Calling all artists… we’ve got a unique opportunity for you… a chance to fly your artwork to the Edge of Space!

Okay, so maybe you aren’t an out of this world artist, let me be honest, I definitely am not! I am known to joke that any artwork I create looks like a 6 year old did it and that saying that might be insulting to the 6 year old! BUT with this Fly your artwork to the edge of space opportunity, while only a handful of physical pieces of artwork will be flown, all artwork will be flown digitally and every person whose artwork flies (including digitally) will get a certificate of flight. That’s really cool!

I have my boarding passes from the recent Perseverance flight and from the Orion EFT-1 flight…. Those were just me sending my name electronically and I thought that was absolutely awesome… the idea that I can send something I created (even if it’s not the greatest art in the world) to the Edge of Space… I am so in! I don’t know quite what it will look like yet (though I need to figure it out soon because time is running out) but I do know it will reflect me in some way… and of course it will meet all the criteria outlined for submission. (Note – there are specific criteria you are required to meet for your artwork to be accepted.)

Want to find out more? For full details and to submit your artwork.

I am excited to have my artwork flown on the Space Perspective Neptune One test flight. I promise to share whatever it is I create once I get it created… I hope you will share yours as well!
