The Imaginarium hosted a large display of art by the International Association of Astronomical Artists in conjunction with their exhibit on Space and Flight. With thanks to the Imaginarium's director, Judy Nielsen, the exhibit professionally displayed not only all the art but descriptions about each piece and biographies of each artist. Robin Hart of the IAAA organized the event for the IAAA, gathering art from around the globe to be displayed at the exhibit and prepared a continuously running slide show of even more members' artwork and of the genre in general. Thanks also to Robin for the dazzling IAAA and show signage throughout the exhibit. A reception was held 4/29 at the Imaginarium.
