Wednesday, March 9 | 7:00 PM

Mizner Park Amphitheater

America's oldest active astronaut and an esteemed photographer, Donald Pettit offers a view of our planet from the perspective of one who has two very long stints in space.

From Donald Pettit's 2016 book, Spaceborne:

SpaceborneAstronaut Donald R. Pettit has lived in space – worked and walked in space. During his 370 days aboard the International Space Station, Pettit created a unique portfolio of fascinating photographs of the earth, the stars, and everything in between. They are the stuff dreams are made of.

"Art is woven into the fabric of space, and we will only fully sense its forms by venturing there. Astronauts are privileged to be the explorers of this age, adn I believe we should share out experiences with everyone on earth." – Donald R. Pettit.
