This unique tour experience provides the opportunity to explore the world where art and science collide. From the Sheraton Hotel we will travel by bus to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) where we will begin with viewing a multimedia presentation “Journey to the Planets and Beyond,” which provides an overview of JPL’s activities and accomplishments. Then we will receive a general tour of JPL, before meeting our host Dan Goods, an artist who works with space engineers. For nearly a decade, he has been the only visual artist working as a regular employee at any NASA center, and he is considered JPL’s only “visual strategist.” We will visit Goods’ studio, where he explores themes of science and challenging materials. He has created exhibitions at JPL, the Pasadena California Museum of Art, and the Technorama Museum in Switzerland.
