Space Art,
The Artist's View of the Cosmos
by Robin Hart

Space Art? or ?Astronomical Art?, is the genre of modern artistic expression emerging from knowledge and ideas associated with outer space, both as a source of inspiration and as a means for visualizing the cosmos, and promoting space travel.

This talk gives a brief discussion of the historical depictions of the cosmos and the founding fathers of modern space art in the space age. 18 artists from the International Association of Astronomical Artists are featured along with the three dominant genres of space art.
