Students from several European art schools have created paintings dedicated to the month-long Artemis mission and the European life support module that will participate in it. The works of the two winners will travel across the Atlantic Ocean together with one of the modules.
Art for Artemis
On August 22, at 06.00 p.m.GMT+3, an exhibition of art works of the Art for Artemis project will open in Bremen, Germany. European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Reiter will take part in its opening.
The project is dedicated to the flight of the SLS lunar rocket as part of the Artemis I mission. Students studying art at various art schools across the European continent took part in it: Les Beaux-arts de Paris in Paris, France, Kristiania in Oslo, Norway, UCM in Madrid, Spain, Basel Institute of Art in Basel, Switzerland, Media College in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Comic School in Turin, Italy, Hochschule Darmstadt in Darmstadt, Germany, and Forsbergs Skolan in Stockholm, Sweden.
Paintings floating across the ocean
A total of 22 works were selected to participate in the exhibition. They are made in different styles and techniques. You will be able to enjoy them during the entire time when the rocket will fly towards the Moon. And two more pictures chosen by the jury will sail together with the European Service Module-3 across the Atlantic Ocean to the launch site.
In total, three European service modules have been built to date for the first launches of the SLS rocket. The first of them is already installed on the rocket, the launch of which is scheduled for August 29. The second module is now in the NASA assembly shop.
The third module is still in Europe, and it will be symbolically accompanied by selected works on the first step to the Moon. It is the most important of all, because it will provide astronauts with everything they need when they return to the Moon, a place for which they have recently chosen.
