NASA Life and Work on the Moon Art Contest

Space for All and Out of the Cradle point to a NASA art contest called The Moon: Back to the Future. This contest is for university art students (with art broadly defined to include fine arts, architecture, computer design, etc). Realistic depictions of the lunar environment are required for the art to win. The rules show categories for two-dimensional art, three-dimensional art, and digital art. There will be cash prizes and exhibits of the winning art at NASA sites. Collaboration with science and/or engineering departments is encouraged. A number of resources are provided to familiarize the students with possible lunar scenarios.
