The UWM Planetarium is accepting submissions  through Thursday, March 13 for the 5th annual Art in Space Spring Benefit event!

Artists that create space-themed art will receive half the proceeds the art sells for from a silent auction. The art can be any medium; digital, painted, drawn, it doesn't matter.  Artists will receive a free ticket to the event.

Art in Space is on Saturday, April 12, 2014 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Artists may drop off art in Physics Room 150 on Wednesday, March 12 between 3:30 - 5 p.m. or on Thursday, March 13 from 4 - 5 p.m.  Email a title, brief description, questions, or early submissions to Zabrina Tamarkin at
