Blast off: Explore outer space in Mission to Space at the Children’s Museum of Arts

Ground control is calling all space travelers to come and visit before the mission takes off on Jan. 22 at the Children’s Museum of Art.

The exhibit Mission to Space covers the mysteries of outer space and how it continues to challenge our imaginations. As life on Earth faces a volatile future, outer space emerges as a destination of refuge, peace, and infinite possibility.

While there, come to the Pepperman Family Fine Arts Studio and enjoy two new interactive installations by designer Ellen Van Dusen, and the Bridge Project Crazy Space Odyssey, by Tom Burnett, Edy Escamilla, and Yung Oh Le Page.

The Bridge is full of sights, sounds, and even a moving comet. As you continue to the space station you will board a spacecraft and blast off into out space.

Mission to Space, daily until Jan. 22, from noon to 4 pm. Free with museum admission.

Children’s Museum of the Arts [103 Charlton St. at Hudson Street in Hudson Square, (212) 274–0986; www.cmany.org].
