This exhibit highlights all aspects of the Navy’s participation in our nation’s journey into manned space.
This exhibition includes 35 works of art, by various artists including Paul Ortlip, Everett Raymond Kinstler and Cliff Young. In situ drawings, watercolors of equipment and men, portraits of astronauts and paintings of significant events make up the images presented in the exhibition.
