Human spaceflight inspires humans to create art, in many forms—a collection of fiber art quilts entitled Fly Me To The Moon has been touring the country since late 2016 with more stops on the schedule. A group of those quilts was displayed at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston a year ago in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 1 fire; curator Susanne Jones comments on the artistic elements of some of the pieces as well as the educational value of the exhibit to a nation inspired by space exploration.
