Space, Art, Education.. Three of my favorite things in life mixed into one gallery? Yes, yes please. Here’s an awesome look at one of Wired’s photo galleries featuring various space themed artwork done by students for an art contest.
This year’s Space Foundation Student Art Contest attracted 1,500 prekindergarten to high school students from the U.S., Pakistan and Turkey with the theme “Space is Infinite – Explore.” Astronauts will present the 36 winners at the 28th National Space Symposium later this month in Colorado Springs.
From stargazing in sleeping bags to shuttle launches and science fiction landscapes, students made drawings, paintings and mixed-media pieces depicting space. Here are some Wired favorites from the winners.
