I hope that you are healthy and well as we continue to settle into 2021.
The year has had a thrilling start, with the Mars Perseverance Rover successfully landing on February 18. That same day, we launched Mars: An Artistic Mission to celebrate the event. Alongside this virtual exhibition, we will host on March 13 a panel of scientists and artists alike, who will detail how science and art are intertwined, creating beautiful art and ease of access to scientific material for the public. We hope you will join us for what will be a fascinating discussion.
As you may know, 2021 marks the introduction of our new quarterly Excellence in Traditional Fine Art Competition. This coming Sunday, March 7, we are excited to unveil the works of the finalists for the inaugural event, themed Renewal and Rebirth, and announce the artists who have been awarded honors and cash prizes from guest judge Peter Trippi, editor-in-chief of Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine. Be sure to visit our website this Sunday to see the exemplary works in this virtual exhibition.
