The Space Show

 

THE SPACE SHOW celebrates space and it’s endlessness! … Co-Curated with Billy Kheel & Aimée Lubin, we’ve invited artists to explore where we are today and how space propels us to move forward. 
.
For centuries, artists have tapped into the human desire to explore the moon and beyond … to push their creativity and imaginations. From maps of the stars to the design of the telescope, and even sci-fi fantasy, we look into other existences. Join us on our journey at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland!
.
A portion of the art sales will be donated to 9 Dots, a non-profit dedicated to educating the next generation of scientists, engineers, and space pioneers.
.
Join us for our opening event on Saturday, September 28th from 6-9pm at Leanna Lin's Wonderland in Eagle Rock!
