Please join us on Thursday, September 30 from 11am-1pm at the Institute for Creative Inquiry (Roop Hall 208) for the opening reception for Imaging Women in the Space Age. From the earliest moon goddesses to today’s galactic fashions, visions of females in space have sparked the creative imagination. This exhibit, which comes to us from The New York Hall of Science (NYSCI), showcases the achievements of America’s pioneering female astronauts and highlights the historic fascination with space women in movies, television, advertising, fashion design and today’s toys. One-half of the 38-image exhibit will be displayed in the 2nd floor hallway of ENGEO and the other half will be exhibited in ICI in Roop Hall 208 and both will run from September 30 – December 10, 2021. Curator Julie Wosk will give a brief curator's talk (virtually) Thursday Sept. 30 at 11:30, and remain for discussions afterward.

The College of Integrated Science and Engineering, the College of Arts and Letters, the JMU History Department and the Institute for Creative Inquiry (ICI) have teamed up to co-host this art and history exhibit . All are welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
