Mark your calendars for The Art of Astronomy, a three-day public event celebrating the collaboration of astronomy and art in Pasadena, California. The event will feature a spectacular slide show of cosmic images, lectures from world-renowned space artists, and a public unveiling of a magnificent new image from NASA's Spitzer and Hubble Space Telescopes.

The Art of Astronomy kicks off on Saturday, November 4, 2006, with a slide show of cosmic images, which will run continuously every evening through the weekend. Showings will begin at dusk and end at 11pm in the One Colorado Courtyard (between Colorado Blvd. and Union St. and between Fair Oaks and DeLacey) in Old Pasadena.

The event will culminate with space art lectures and a public image unveiling at 7:30 pm on Monday, November 6, in the One Colorado Courtyard.

The Art of Astronomy is a public event sponsored by the Spitzer Science Center's Astro Viz 2006 Workshop, a meeting of international space artists dedicated to expanding the field of astronomy visualization. The Spitzer Science Center at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, is the science operations headquarters for NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope mission, which explores the cosmos in infrared light. NASA's Jet Propulsions Laboratory, also located in Pasadena, manages the Spitzer Space Telescope mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, DC.

One Colorado is an outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment district spanning one city block in Old Pasadena. This award-winning destination unites the urban environment of 17 historic buildings with 40 contemporary fashion and dining attractions. The One Colorado Courtyard, designed in the tradition of European town squares, is Old Pasadena's main public space for film festivals, live music, high-quality fine art markets, children's programs, and site-specific art installations curated by the Armory Center for the Arts.
