Loose in Some Real Tropics: Robert Rauschenberg's “Stoned Moon” Series, 1969–70

In 1969, American artist Robert Rauschenberg was invited by the NASA Art Program to document the launch of Apollo 11, the first manned spaceflight to the moon. Rauschenberg produced Stoned Moon, a series of 34 large-format lithographs replete with scenes of astronauts, complex machinery, and various regional ephemera. This exhibition features a number of the Stoned Moon lithographs together with 20 rarely seen collages and drawings, photographs of the artist visiting NASA’s facilities, correspondence between the artist and the NASA Art Program, and more.
