The James Webb Space Telescope:
Art + Science 2017


Twenty two artists were selected nationwide to attend the James Webb Space Telescope Artist Event at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. They sat directly in front of the Webb telescope and were briefed on the mission by scientists, engineers and other project personnel while they worked; sketching, painting, writing, sewing, playing music. This gallery shows their impressions of the Webb Telescope and it's mission. For more information, see the press release.
